New Thing+ #6: Use WiFi On A Plane

This particular new thing probably won’t seem all that special to most people, but man did it just make my day when I stumbled upon wifi on my flight back from Jacksonville, Florida.

It’s not that I dislike flying all that much, but I really, really hate being bored for hours at a time. So when I noticed an off duty pilot surfing Amazon in the seat next to me I got excited.

A few clicks and dollars later and I was posting, surfing and IMing with my wife from thousands of feet above the earth.

Now if only Porter Airlines offered wifi in their planes they would officially be the greatest airline on earth.
