I’m on the train to London this morning for a customer meeting. I got onto the train at 06.20 in Warrington, Cheshire and by 08.40 (and it’s rarely late) I’ll be in London Euston. Nothing special there – but what’s great is that when I got onto the train I plugged my Windows Mobile 3G phone into my laptop chose the ‘Internet Sharing’ function and I was on the ‘net. One of the first things to come down into my Blog reader was this post from Steve Clayton. Steve is working on our Software + Services initiative and was commenting on the possibility that with technologies such as Live Mesh to sync data onto all of our devices (phones, PC’s, Mac’s, TVs etc.) that it might be the end for the memory stick. Well that’s only any good IF you’ve got internet connectivity – so it’s a welcome bit of news that my Internet connection is getting increasingly good on this train journey (and most other train journeys for that matter). It used to be that the connection was down more than up – now it’s the opposite and with Outlook clients cached mode I rarely notice the ‘down’ times. So as I write and post this we are speeding through some green countryside somewhere on route to London :) Imagine WHEN the promise of always connected, ample bandwidth communications really arrives – how will that change our lives…
