I'm sitting here with my trusty RIM in the Air Canada lounge waiting for a morning flight. The entertainment portion of the pre-flight is watching this very well dressed women crawling under a desk trying to plug in a laptop.
This, of course, is in the brand new Maple Leaf Lounge. The one where IBM and host of others spent a good deal of coin to make it modern, state of the art, etc.
No power at the desk. You have crawl under the desk to find, if you are lucky, a plug. Amazing.. The person who designed and approved this setup probably doesn't even own a laptop.
Many of you may remember the good ol days where the big thing was broken RJ11 phone lines and glued/stapled cords. All those people ripping phones off the wall to get to a dial up connection.
We're making real progress. We now have wireless (free in the lounge) and people crawling on the floor looking for a power connection.
Don't build it if you don't live it. Not a bad mantra. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to help the nice women.
