First, there is a standard power outlet, so I can plug my laptop without any sort of adapter. This is important because even with the super-sized battery for my Thinkpad, it still burns through it in about 90 minutes. Second, they have free broadband Internet access. Called Connexion, it’s provided by Boeing and Lufthansa is one of the only airlines to offer it. And third, it works with the wireless network adapter on my laptop. No cables to tangle with or trip over on my way to the lavatory.
I’m able to run browse multiple websites, sign into Sametime at the office, WLM Messenger and even control my DVR at home via Slingbox. I think that qualifies me for the geek of the week award, don’t you?
