Internet Plane Service Unplugged

Services I don't use or want proliferate without abandon (IM, Social Networking Sites), while services I do want shut down:

In a widely anticipated move, Boeing has confirmed it would phase out its Connexion in-flight wireless (internet) service by the end of the year. The move marks the final blow for a much-hyped six-year program for Internet access on board airliners that was beleaguered from the start.

I hope an alternative technology comes over the horizon soon. The one time I tried this I really liked it. I can kill hours on the internet working, blogging, or browsing, making those ten and twelve hours stuck in a tube just fly by both literally and figuratively.
