AT&T Wireless Begins Selling Fast Data for Mobiles

Cellular broadband, which is what this idea boils down to, is an awesome innovation. It doesn't say how fast the connection will be, but if it will stream video it has to be at least mildly speedy.

An adaptation of this that I'd love to see would be car stereos that can play Internet radio stations in Real, Windows Media, and MP3 streams. That way I could get BBC7 in the car even though I'm nowhere NEAR Broadcasting House. Of course, I'm not even on the same continent, so proximity almost ceases to be an issue.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
