I can get on-line everywhere with decent bandwidth with my 3G phone, I can plug a 3G USB modem in my MacBook Pro and WiFi networks are becoming common everywhere, allowing me to use my Mac and also my iPod Touch.
But being able to get on-line everywhere is not as easy as it could get, I have to configure a lots of hardware and software, buy different subscriptions and deal with every system update and assorted incompatibilities between devices.
I got this idea when I was sharing my 3G modem via wifi with Dave while sitting in Piazza del Duomo in Milano. It worked well, but I would like achieve the same result with a little toy which could very well only sport an on/off button.
I would buy this little device (which should also have a rechargeable battery) from a cell service provider with some sort of convenient flat data service, and it would contain a SIM card.
Clicking the ON button should trigger a connection (3G, Edge or whatever other standards are supported around the globe) and share it on a local wifi network. It doesn't have to be very powerful, it just have to get all my toys on-line in a very simple and configuration free way.
PS: if such a device already exists, please tell me where I should send my money ;->
