Just wondering if it were possible to get pay-as-you-go internet for my MacBook. I noticed that I didn't have an expansion slot and was really let down. Is there a work-around?

They make USB 3G modems.

Whether or not you get service will depend on where you are.

It's easy, just sign up with one of these and plug-in the USB dongle.
That looks like it would do the trick if I ever decided to go international.

Tethering on my blackberry is an extra $15/month. Maybe it wouldn't be bad for a month if I needed to use it.

$15 a month = $15 per day???? that makes no sense unless you only use it one day per month.
sorry, the "this" was unclear. I was referring to the vzw mifi but now that I look at it, I don't see where $15/day came from. $40/month + unit cost. Just seems better to tether, no?
