Boeing October 15, 2006

Posted by Jasper in Uncategorized.

Freakeconomics had a post on Friday called: Apparently, There’s No Future in This Thing They Call the Internet. In the post the Stephen Dubner refers to a letter he recieved announcing that Boing would no longer offer internet access on flights.

…after a detailed analysis of the Connexion by Boeing business, the company has decided to exit the high-speed broadband communications connectivity market.

I sympathize with Stephen when he writes that he is saddened by this move.  Although the options for internet access are generally increasing and improving and we as people are becoming increasingly “wired”, Boeing is moving in the other direction. It simply defies logic. Surely they will come to their senses again – and soon.

Boeings official press release is here.
