Your own personal WiFi bubble

Wow that's a cool device.

On a related note:
I'm part of Beta testing group for the iPhone and there are public reports of the newest iPhone OS (currently Beta 3) being able to share it's 3G data stream via bluetooth or dongle/tether attached computer.

If I haven't seen this in action yet and I couldn't tell you even if I did (scariest NDA I've ever signed) but as I said 'public' reports say that it's possible.

Re: Your own personal WiFi bubble

This sounds remarkably similar to the setup described at http://www.teknoids.net/content/new-llrxcom and I'm really sure that this trend will render the technology part of no wifi in the classroom moot. Looks like faculty and students will need to rely upon a professor's in class rules and the school's honor code to deal with the use of the network during class.

Your own personal WiFi bubble

You can do the same thing even more easily with a MacBook Pro and Verizon
wireless card by simply turning on wi-fi sharing. I could imagine a study
group sharing the cost of a Verizon subscription for that very purpose.

"... I could imagine a study group sharing the cost of a Verizon subscription..."

Even the overage charges when you have 5 people (random number) using the same connection for some time, and they go over the 5 GB cap Verizon imposes, then get charged for additional data downloaded/uploaded?

RE: Your own personal WiFi bubble

I currently use my Blackberry Storm in exactly that way (bluetooth) to connect my MacBook Pro to Verizon's broadband network. And I didn't have to sign an NDA to do it ;)

Your own personal WiFi bubble

Ya know there is a culture war brewing here very similar to the Mac vs. PC.

Blackberry vs. iPhone. I have been personally insulted on numerous occasions for having one of the -superior- devices:)
