An up-to-the-minute guide to WiFi in airports world-wide.
Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter decided to switch parties this week. A moderate, idiosyncratic Republican at best, Specter said he'd grown disillusioned from the core of the party and will be moving his desk over to the other side of the aisle -- conveniently, with plenty of time to spare before what would have been a fierce primary challenge for his seat in 2010.
Arlen Specter probably got an even exchange of cheers to jeers from his constituents and fellow representatives this week, but he shouldn't read them till Saturday: That's when Philadelphia Airport offers free WiFi to passengers, every weekend. The good news is, the most toxic responses can be neutralized by his interns, who if they happen to be college students can get free WiFi all week. Connections soared after the airport instituted this plan in early 2008, but they're taking that as a good sign to continue to dangle that freebie at travelers. Monday through Friday, it's Boingo all the way.
Even if you didn't make a major job change this week, we'd love to hear about the airport where you're reading this.
