PingWi-Fi Is Finicky Boy In Santa Cruz

April 23rd, 2010 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

It was a great sign when I saw the surfboards, sharks and Cadillac posters at Fins Coffee shop on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz. Second, it was comforting to see a graying old surfer and his HP on the Internet. Yes. There is wireless at Fins — if you bring in an AT&T or T-Mobile […]

Every Day Is Wi-Fi Day … Today PingWi-Fi Be Luvin Sum Earth

April 22nd, 2010 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Restaurant · Wi-Fi

This is my best Earth Day, in like forever — especially since I don’t remember celebrating the previous 39 events. This ED was special … so special that a stranger walked into my hotel room this morning to share it with me. He woke me up after my all-night stint, cleaning soot from a library […]

April 9th, 2010 · Tags: Arts · Cities

You would think a man who can satisfy and bankroll multiple women — somehow preventing them from killing each other — would be more diplomatic. Just kidding. Fort Worth’s Bill Paxton, star of the HBO polygamist hit, parked on the red carpet at the Dallas International Film Festival Thursday … and while, yes, he represented […]

PingWi-Fi Bings Over To Dallas Intl. Film Fest Bootay Kickin

April 8th, 2010 · Tags: Arts · Cities

The search for Hotel Palomar in Dallas yesterday was no problem. I had just visited the place a month ago for a Bing search engine discussion. Oh yes, I sampled the Wi-Fi at the Kimpton property … as my friend Steve Plunkett pretty much wowed the crowd with his opinions on how Bing works and […]
