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.

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!
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

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.
