Turn Your Car Into a Wireless Hotspot

It had to happen eventually didn't it? Well, now it's here: an Internet connection for your car.

"It's the ability to maintain the Internet-based lifestyle people live today," said Sterling Pratz, chief executive of Autonet, the first automotive Internet provider, in today's WSJ article about how cars, planes and maybe even trains are becoming wireless hot spots."

"Avis Car Rental has recorded thousands of rental days for the Wi-Fi boxes -- customers pay $10.95 a day to use the service. Passengers -- typically tourists -- who use the service surf the Web to find local restaurants or activities."

MP: How long will it take before there is a "no surfing while driving ordinance?"
