Back in 2007, we went on a road trip to a place in Quebec: Lac-Saint-Jean. We had a very small camera, and … more importantly; for the first time a laptop computer! This was the first time we could stay in a motel and be connected via wifi!
All our earlier road trips had been offline, more or less, for the simple reason we didn’t have a laptop. I do remember seeing all those motels advertising «free wifi», but what good did that do us, when our computer stood at home as a big tower. There were Internet Cafés, I remember the one in Bar Harbor, ME in particular … they charged per 15 minutes and it was pretty steep.
Tomorrow I’ll be going on a little trip of my own. I’ll put my MacBook in my purse and if I’d, for some unknown reason, would feel the urge to connect it, anywhere along the way, I can do so with the hotspot on my iPhone. This is just eight years later and things, in the field of electronics, change with the speed of lightning.
Updates will follow 😻
