David Pogue on the Virgin Mobile MiFi:
Second, Virgin requires no contract. You can sign up for service only when you need it. In other words, it’s totally O.K. with Virgin if you leave the thing in your drawer all year, and activate it only for, say, the two summer months when you’ll be away. That’s a huge, huge deal in this era when every flavor of Internet service, portable or not, requires a two-year commitment.
I am really jealous, I don’t know much about Sprint’s coverage in the Seattle area but it can’t be that bad. This is a great option for, well for everyone.
