Now Liberated by a Dongle, no less, which gives me broadband internet on my laptop pretty much anywhere for £15 a month — rather less than I’ve been spending recently sitting around Starbucks and chums at £5 an hour plus frappucinos. Yesterday’s blogpost was originated from the front (passenger) seat on the Linslade bypass. Apparently students and others are stoking up a wild dongle market. It all seems to work very well — oh and you get free use of Starbucks hotspots thrown in. T-Mobile setup instructions for my Mac were clunky, but sort of worked. Better use these; and Mac owners wanting full realtime usage info need a nifty Kiwi utility called Cheetahwatch.
I have already named the pinnacles of Bucks civilisation — Apple Store, Ikea, Lego store. Add to that a Hotel Chocolat, also in MK (where else), and your cup well and truly runneth over. Nothing geeky about that, anyway.
