JetBlue Wi-Fi

JetBlue, Yahoo, and Research in Motion plan to offer free, in-flight, Wi-Fi web connections for laptop computers and advanced cell phones.

The service will allow passengers to access customized Yahoo mail and Yahoo instant messenger services on their laptops or to access e-mails on Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerrys. According to a spokesperson for RIM, the first JetBlue flight offering the service will be on December 11.

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m not that excited by the ability to get my emails on the plane. Even being the hard-core BlackBerry fan that I am, I sort of enjoy unplugging from the world for a few hours and reading a book during the flight. Soon you won’t have an excuse to give up your connectivity.
