The cyber-hippie-dippie optimism that mobile computing could rely on open wi-fi's everywhere, crashed and burned many years ago. Now the norm everyhere I've been, is that wi-fis are locked, even if your device's initial search survey doesn't say so. (Try to connect with one of those wi-fis that initially seem unlocked, and then it becomes clear that it IS locked.) My city was one of the several that said they'd build a free wi-fi system and then didn't do it. Steve Jobs seems to have snoozed through all this history, like Rip Van Winkle. Everyone else offers cellular modem options, while Apple stubbornly drags its feet. While yammering about "mobility." What on earth is Jobs's problem with this? Perhaps Apple's Board of Directors needs to step in and make the decision for him? If he's the genius the media all say he is, why is he so stubbornly stupid on this question?
