Maybe it’s just me, but whenever I think about going to a park, I think of long dog walks, maybe throwing the frisbee around, & lounging on a blanket in the shade somewhere. Well, very soon in California, you’ll be able to bring your mobile device of choice along & have unfettered access to the net while you’re at it. Takes some of the nostalgia out of it, don’t it?
"San Elijo State Beach, outside of San Diego, is the first park covered under the company’s FreedomLink service. The company plans to set up hot spots in 84 more parks over the next few months, SBC said. Nearly 85 million people visit the state park system every year. The company said park visitors will be able to access Wi-Fi networks when they use a wireless device within about 150 to 200 feet of a SBC hot spot located in the park."
