The Mobile Lawyer -- One Lap, No Jetlag: Never be surprised

Never be surprised

There was a news story a few months ago talking about the possibility of soon getting wireless internet access on airline flights. Apparently the technology to do that is already out there. The stories concentrated on the airlines concern that people might sit on the plane and download or watch porn, so that other passengers would have to be subjected to seeing it.

I laughed the story off. Who would sit in a public place and watch porn? It just seemed like a ridiculous concern.

Then I got up this morning to have a cup of coffee and check the internet on my laptop in my hostel in Montevideo, Uruguay. I plugged my computer into one of the plugs in the reception area, where the three public computers are located.

And the guy two computers over from me is watching -- Sorry, I had to get a good enough look to see the exact website, just so I could write about it.

Well, the sound was off. Maybe he thought he was being discreet in that way.
