BroadBand2Go

As a freelancer, I use my computer on the go a lot; usually I'm writing and don't need Internet, but it's nice to occasionally read an email or fact check something...it's not nice enough to pay the 60 dollar fee for a 3G data plan.

Virgin Mobile is about to release a new plan that's perfect for people who want the "occasional" Internet on the go. The BroadBand2Go USB device sold exclusively through Best Buy let's you get Pay As You Go Internet access with no monthly fees or contracts.

The catch is it's $150 dollars to buy the USB drive, but if you need your Internet to go in minimal doses, then it's perfect.

Thanks for the heads up - this has nice potential. Unfortunate that the device isn't a little cheaper, but looking at the info, it looks like Virgin mobile has reasonable usage charges and wide coverage on the map.

Scott, you every think about a 1 gig smart pen? I use one quite a bit. Records everything you write with a lazer plus voice attached to it (I ramble and talk aloud when I am writing).
Check out the videos. I did not believe it until I saw it...

About $150.00 at target. Maybe cheaper on Amazon...

I've seen it, Nick; I suppose if I wrote by hand more it would be intriguing, but I started typing everything when I couldn't understand my own handwriting!
