Can You Hear Me Now?

I love the wireless world. From wifi networks, to cellular phones, and even bluetooth, there are many conveniences heading our way if we can find the patience. I read today that Philly is going to install a free, citywide wifi network. New PDAs (think ipaq, palm pilots, etc.) are equipped with both wifi and cellular technology. Some hotels offer free wireless, so if you're equipped to log on, you can.

But I have to give jeers to the hotels that are installing cellular jamming equipment. The hotels used to make quite a bit of revenue from phone calls made from the hotel room, and most guests are opting to use their wireless minutes instead of pay the outrageous hotel connection charges.

Is that ridiculous, or what?
