My old buddy Mark Hurst sends me a clip from the Economist outlining new "4G" networks. For those who don't have a burning interest in telco infrastructure marketing jargon, "3G" was meant to be about movies on phones (which failed) and "4G" seems to be about...well, the best I can do is long distance 802.11 service.

Sometimes I have been lucky finding a WiFi hotspot and sometimes I haven't, but I don't know how much I'm willing to pay to get that connection in those few instances when I want to but cannot. What I really want is a cell phone with great reception, especially since those new tiny phones have lousy antennas.
