During my 3.5 hour layover in Chicago, I'm trying out this LaptopLane workspace and service. It's not too bad, but is a little pricey. I should get offline soon. 65 cents/minute adds up quickly!

I know there's a Yahoo display somewhere in this airport that has (I think) free Wifi, but I'll be damned if anyone here can tell me what terminal it's in. That leads me to believe it's not in Terminal 1.

Oh, well. Off to Ohio soon. It's gonna be cold there. Really cold.

Never knew those LaptopLane places were that pricey..I was on my way to Vegas once and almost wanted to go try since I needed to check the weather..

Luckily I waltzed into the vicinity of a free hotspot before that happened.

Hey, happy giftmas Jeremy..

65 cents a minute and you spend it blogging. Now there is dedication.

I was at ORD this weekend and on my trip home noticed the Y! kiosk living in the "bridge" between the H and K terminals, closer to the H side (around H9). There didn't appear to be anyone around, and the monitor was off, but that could have been due to the fact that it was Sunday afternoon. Didn't pull out my laptop and try, or even take a closer look.

I thought Laptop Lane was a great place to do your work before catching a flight. Too bad wifi supporters forced O'hare to take it out. Everyone nowadays wants to go the fast, cheap, and easy way. Laptop Lane provided customers with a pc, printer, fax machine, telephone which you could make free local and long distance calls with the use of the office space. It was 5 dollars for the first 5 minutes and 65 cents a minute after that. Towards the end of Laptop lane they ran lower price specials. 30 bucks for an hour. I'm sorry but you don't get all that with damn wifi. Thanks to you wifi idiots laptop lane got shut down. Now o'hare doesen't have a business center. You can't make long didtance calls there anymore.
