    Hmmm. A correction. In talking about taking advantage of WiFi at my hotels in Egypt, they always had it but you had to be in a downstairs area and I preferred to relax in the hotel room, so I used the ethernet arrangements in the rooms.

    I used WiFi mainly in the airports. With a 10 hour stopover in Frankfurt, that netbook did make the wait less painful.
