HomeGrid Forum: Innovations in Power over Ethernet (PoE), G.hn – CES 2012

Will Clearwire’s A-la Carte pre-pay 4G Service Bring Customers? 1

Will Clearwire’s A-la Carte pre-pay 4G Service Bring Customers?

When I was in Vegas in June, I had the opportunity to use a Clear 4G card for the week. It was nice – $50 for the week and I didn’t have to suffer from hotel speeds – especially since the hotel charged $14.95 a day to connect ( Which would have cost $90). Today, Clearwire announced a new pricing plan, which would come to $5 a day – $50 a month. The service is called Rover – It’s the first “Pay as you go” 4G plan. You can connect with one device, like a laptop, or for $149.99, you can get the rover puck – their hotspot alternative. You can then connect up to 8 devices and would be perfect for connection to iPhones or iPads when there is spotty 3G and WiFi service. If you want to buy the USB dongle, that will cost $99.99. “Simple,...

Ramblings – 10-11-08 – Goodbye Aunt Edie, WP-Cache

The first paragraph goes out to my Aunt Edie. She passed away earlier this morning. I got to spend some time with her one summer when I was in grade school. At the time she owned an actual food concessions trailer. She would drive it to each location and serve the workers lunch, then close up and drive on back home. I learned how to play backgammon from Edie. Later in life, Edie and Uncle Ed, along with the kids, moved to a horse farm North-East of here. We had a few family get-togethers at the farm. The horses were being raised for the Kentucky derby, so they were rigorously trained. For that, I bid adeau to my aunt. She lived a solid life and taught me a few things. I won’t forget it.
