Ok, a few days ago I made a churlish comment about Virgin’s sliding scale for onboard internet use. I am sitting here in a Virgin plane heading to Dreamforce blogging for free (free for the holidays, thanks Google). My MacBook is also being powered by an electric plug just under my seat. How nice and convenient! Grateful as I am I STILL think the airline ought to be able to standardize on a single price for airborne internet rather than the sliding scale they are now using — or will use after the holidays. But boy is this nice.
