I think costs were about $500, but would probably be under $300
I've had one in my car for the past couple months, and it's been constant, roving Wifi.
Don't take the Sprint cards to Canada though, $5k in one month roaming fees isn't fun ;)

Comment: Downside to new Exchange support. (Score 1) 276 276

I have upgraded my machines to Snow Leopard, excited to use the Exchange support.
Only to find out it only works for Exchange 2007!
So, to move my clients off Windows/Outlook|Mac/Entourage I have to upgrade my Microsoft Exchange server to 2007?

That's not really helping *me*, Apple...

OTOH; I love getting disk space back from an upgrade - Mac Air 64GB SSD users rejoice. AND I love Apple's family pack pricing for my home Mac's. Also, WTF dropping Power PC support this soon?

The UNIX philosophy basically involves giving you enough rope to hang yourself. And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.

Working...
