EV-DO is a bit of a miracle

I'm in Las Vegas for CTIA, and so it's appropriate that I'm connecting on the web via Verizon's EV-DO service. (WiFi coverage in the hotels is lousy, plus it costs $12.99 per day.)

My first CTIA was New Orleans in 1992, and if I recall correctly, McCaw Cellular began developing the CDPD (cellular digital packet data) service around that time. That service didn't do much of anything, but now, sixteen years later, mobile broadband is a fixture.
