Ye Olde Wireless Internet

Being a tech blog, we are up to our laptops in the latest gadgetry and services. Naturally, as soon as Verizon (the bastard child of BellAtlantic, GTE and AirTouch) unveiled its new “Wireless Web” service we were the first ones in line to, get this, surf the Internet on our cellular telephones. Yes, yes, we too were shocked at first as to how this was possible, but apparently it is a quickly evolving technology.

In our testing, viewing e-mails on StarTAC was a pleasurable experience. A big plus for geek cred: Being able to stay connected to your inbox on the go.

Read a third-party’s review of the service here and happy 21st century.
