I finished my tour of The Great White North and am back in the US where I feel much more comfortable using my electronics. With my data usage I always get the feeling I will see multi-thousand dollar wireless bills for a few days of use. In less than ten hours I went over the AT&T Mobility data usage limit my MIS team had set at 20 Mb. Suffice it to say Trapster
is a bandwidth hog... Not to mention tons of email with attachments.
The EVDO in my laptop worked great in Canada -- it was every bit as good as the US. Likewise Rogers 3G was as fast as AT&T. I know many people complain about AT&T service and it is still inferior to Verizon but getting better by the day.
At the moment I am in a six-hour marathon drive from Rochester to Mass. It is a gray day and the leaves haven't turned yet so it is not such a great trip from a visual perspective.
At least I'm getting lots of work done. :)
The trends are the same as they have been for a while. Hosted is hot, hardware is not selling as well as it used to and video has lots of potential. Obviously this info is not lost on Cisco who picked up
