ABSTRACT
The article presents a perspective on how wireless communications influence people in the U.S. Most travelers are using laptop computers in lounges, waiting areas, restaurants and airports. Some of them are working on a document or spreadsheet, but often they are checking their electronic-mail or surfing the Web. With this, trends toward the use of air cards, which provide data connectivity through mobile telephone networks, are still the most common method of connection for traveling users.
