If You Pass On Coffee, There MUST Be Wi-Fi With Donuts

January 29th, 2011 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Sports · Wi-Fi

There may be better ways to soak up the New England history and culture, but it was cold at 6 a.m., the roads were more like tunnels through the plowed snow … and the only thing I found open was Dunkin Donuts. I’ll bite.

Ping Takes Winning Ways To Boston For ‘Dirty Gig,’ Wi-Fi

January 27th, 2011 · Tags: Airports · Wi-Fi

Today the PingWF team headed north for an assignment in Boston. It is one of those “Dirty Gig” things I do on the side, to fund this ongoing search for all things Wi-Fi. My first Wi-Fi sojourn took me to Boston in 2004 and I was not disappointed. I can only imagine how many hotspots […]

Northwestern Rallies, Red Raiders Hold On For TicketCity Win

January 1st, 2011 · Tags: Sports

Well … I have to eat crow after that crack about Texas Tech having Northwestern out-manned in the inaugural TicketCity Bowl.  The Northwestern Wildcats stormed back the second half of play, before succumbing to Tech, 45-38, in an offensive showcase, or a defensive circus depending on who you talk to. At the half, Tech had […]
