Scott Beale of Laughing Squid loves his Kyocera KR1 EV-DO router, which uses a high speed wireless EV-DO connection for sharable Internet WiFi.
Now my portable broadband network is ready to go. I just show up with it, plug it in and in a minute or so the wireless network is live. That’s all there is to it. All I need is power and Verizon EV-DO coverage. Have an old laptop without a wi-fi card? No problem, just plug it into one of the 4 ethernet ports.
I’m going to bring the EV-DO router up to Gnomedex this week and see if I can get it to work at the conference and maybe do some testing with distance and number of users.
I have to say the Kyocera EVDO Router is one of the best things ever. In
our company, we were paying almost $500 a month in one of our stores in NYC
that couldn't get anything beyond a 144k down ADSL. Even at 1XRTT speed, we
get 160 down in that location, and in another location in Ohio, we get
almost 400k down, which is cool because we couldn't get anything at all
there. Laptops weren't an option but this allowed us to hook the EVDO card
up, leave it out where it could get a good signal, and even let the managers
of those locations use their laptops with the included WiFi.
Awesome device and HIGHLY recommended.

I'm using it at Gnomdex right now and it works great. In fact I'm posting photos live from the event using my personal EV-DO network (including photos of guest speaker Senator John Edwards)

Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
Maybe it’s entirely because of podcast ads, but drag-and-drop tools like Squarespace have gotten immensely popular in recent years. While it’s definitely a great tool for any non-coders who want to get a small website up and running quickly, managing content with a primarily visual interface can become a pain once you have more than […]
