GPS — Gringo Peso Shortage In Mexico Wi-Fi Travel

July 16th, 2018 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Coffee Shops · Wi-Fi

Welcome to Mexico. Unlike just about every one of my friends, I had never been to the true resort areas of Mexico, merely some border cities. Still haven’t … However, today I woke up in the heart of Mexico, three hours northwest of Mexico City in the cuidad de Celaya. Celaya has all the traditional […]

Fasten Yo Seatbelts, Elevator Going U-u-u-u-u-up!

May 22nd, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Hotels · Satire

I must admit, the travel life can be pretty interesting … and on the other hand, sometimes it becomes mundane.  That’s when I try to find the good in all … or more accurately, just have fun with it. Take elevators.  Pretty mundane, but there’s got to be something interesting about them.  Don’t they call […]

Wi-Fi, Bike Week For Cheap … The Art Of Public Sleeping

March 14th, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Hotels

  It was the first road trip. It was the first real road trip, because an occasional backroads excursion to Muleshoe or to Lubbock where just not life changing. As farmers, of modest means at that, we just didn’t take vacations.  Then my dad shocked everyone and announced we were headed to Florida for Spring […]

Who Got Game? Major Coincidence For SC Primaries

February 11th, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Satire · Sports

    Decades ago, I was offered a position at a daily newspaper in a mid-sized Texas city.  I was very appreciative.  Print journalism jobs were not that easy to find.  However, the paper — although a Pulitzer Prize winner “in my own backyard” — was not my first choice.  I, of course, wanted to […]

Chattanooga Rolls Out Red Velvet For PingWi-Fi

February 1st, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Coffee Shops · Hotels · Wi-Fi

  In my culture, Chattanooga is a word that translates as nostalgic. One of my bigger public affairs clients a few years back was based in this Tennessee hamlet and my first Wi-Fi Guy blog took me through “Nooga for a few hours. Most nolstalgic, my second visit to the home of Krystal hamburger joints, […]

Doctoring Detroit’s Ills – Can Wi-Fi Cure Rock City?

October 25th, 2014 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Wi-Fi

  Before I finish the PingWi-Fi blogging assignment for Detroit … I can’t help it. I have to comment on the news flowing from Motor City. Thousands of residents had their water shut off for not paying they bills … for months. And can you believe the United Nations waded into the muck to point […]

Just How High Can Wi-Fi Fly?

November 7th, 2013 · Tags: Airports · Wi-Fi

Ha.  It’s about time.  Inflight Wi-Fi is all over the news and it is the subject of more and more airline ads.  Glad they finally got on board, wholeheartedly.  We’ve been evangelizing since, what, 2003?  Regardless, good times!  Nothing better than getting some work done on the computer at 30,000 feet and doing the important […]

There’s Womb For Improvement, But Pretend This Is Best Blog Ever… Preparing For Flaming Lips @SXSW

March 8th, 2013 · Tags: Airports · Arts · Hotels

  I guess I just have a knack for being in the right place at the right time … sort of. Because out of all the hundreds of concerts where Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips has hopped inside his space ball and walked over the audience, flawlessly, the PingWi-Fi team picked the one show […]

Wi-Fi Hotspot Interruptus at 40,000 Feet, With Gogo

March 1st, 2012 · Tags: Airports · Satire · Wi-Fi

Ebola Alert … I was sitting, “comfortably” crammed into a seat way too small for a human on an American Airlines flight, enjoying the sweet Gogo inflight Wi-Fi service when a gentleman came rushing down the aisle to the back of the plane … covering his mouth … and stopped to throw up at my […]

Little Wi-Fi, ‘Big Times’ On 24-Hour Bangkok Journey

December 19th, 2011 · Tags: Airports · Cities

Sawasdee! If you were to visit the headquarters of PingWi-Fi, you would find an eclectic setting — a tale of two reality TV shows … a hybrid somewhere between “Pickers” and “Horders.” We collect it. We stack it. We do funny things with it. The first sign of this condition is a tiny scale model […]
