What a great little gizmo...

The Verizon Wireless UM150 USB Modem. Got one a couple of days ago. I've been in the damn house too long. I need to get out more often and see what type of gadgets are available for remote operations.

This gizmo is great! Install the VZAccess Manager, plug in the UM150 into an available USB port and your connected at broadband speeds, just about anywhere.

The download speeds will hit a maximum of 600kbps-1.4mbps, with upload speeds ranging from 500kbps-800kbp.

Maybe this will get me out of the abode more often. Heck, I can take any system with me as long as I have the software installed and my UM150 with me. I can see it now, sitting at the beach with an iMac 24 setup. Snicker, snicker, snicker...

Where have I been?

What other little gizmos am I missing out on like this?

Oh, I just upgraded from a regular mobile phone to a PDA (full QWERTY) XV6800. I need to catch up with the rest of ya'll. :)

In the UK, Three (mobile provider) do a wireless broadband USB dongle modem thing. Up to 3mbps in 3G areas.

We can get up to 7mbps in Oz (normally about 3-4 on mine) ;-)
Works a treat.

We got a package here a couple months back for a wireless USB toggle (3.6MB and its been upgraded to 7.2 MB now)and ADSL for $55 a month. I use the modem in the office for the office LAN of 3 PCs and ADSL at home. Its probably the best deal I have seen in a long time. The wireless access is fantastic and works within the greater Tokyo metro region.

I have mine set up so I don't use VZAccess...Windows thinks it's a normal dial-up connection.

It's worked out really well for us because we can work anywhere and we don't have to worry about logging into clients' intranets if we need to get online during a meeting.

I went to BarCamp this past fall and their wireless kept going down, but I was able to stay online throughout.
