Gotta love technology. I'm still inflight on Delta 1572 from SAT to ATL. I just took this I-Phone video clip and uploaded it to Youtube in near real time using Delta's WiFi. Available on Youtube before the plane even lands! We're now about 30 minutes from landing.

Very cool. I had no idea Delta flew 757s to SAT though. I'll have to catch one soon.

Did I have a dream...or did the dream have me??

I'm really hoping that they'll have all of the 763 domestic a/c fitted with it by November (The blog on Delta.com says that they will have the DL domestic fleet outfitted by the Fall, but of course, that could change.), as I'm booked on a 763 in late November. I'm on a 757 on the flight back, so I may or may not use it then. I just know I'm going to make sure my netbook battery is fully charged before I get on the plane just in case it is outfitted with WiFi (It's got a six cell battery and that should be more than enough for 2-3 hours of use on a 4.5 hour flight, even with the WiFi on it switched on.).

I think the posting from a flight will be the "cool" thing to do on websites for the next six months or so until WiFi on a flight is commonplace.

Ok, just pulled into gate A9 in Atlanta. I'll try to take another one on the next leg (MD88). Then I'll post that one and see how many people respond before we land. Now I have to get off this jet--it's getting hot!

Now just wait until people start streaming webcams from the flight. I think there is seriously a website idea in there someplace. Kinda like liveatc.net but for live in-flight videos.

I do like the live webcam streaming idea. I have a webcam on the Mac, but I'm not sure how to stream it outside of skype, but maybe I'll figure out how to do that before I get to BDL tonight.

I read an interesting article recently. The topic was about Google's purchase of Youtube
and how it has not been a money maker for them, but a drain instead.
More and more stuff gets uploaded, but the advertisers aren't paying big bucks.
Yet Google has to pay for more and more storage.



First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!

Very nice! Gotta love modern technology! The other day I was in Prague, chatting (from my ipod touch) wireless with my friend, who was using his hotel's wifi thousands of miles away in Enterprise AL!


Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..
