Re: Not a very filling snack...?

Ah, now I understand. That's for the best, considering how distracting that could be! Good idea. So now I think this Internet snacking is much more filling...more like a meal. ;) Definitely sounds like an improvement over OnStar and something that brings us to the promise of WiFi anywhere. Thanks for the clarification and coverage! I guess I just did not read it clearly enough.

Liz, they'll offer full Internet access, but not in the front seat. Full Internet access -- doing a Google search or watching a streaming movie on Netflix -- will be reserved for the back seat. As far as OnStar goes, this is a step up from 2G (voice transmission and slow data services) to 4G (mobile ultra-broadband Internet access).

Hmm, this is interesting, Chuck, but I'm not entirely sure how much it really extends existing technology. How exactly are they a hotspot if you can't surf the Internet? Maybe I just didn't read the article correctly! And I have an older car (well, a VW van, actually) so I don't know exactly what's available via OnStar. Please enlighten me (and have patience with my car luddite-ness). Thanks!
