Andy Ihnatko loves Verizon’s new MiFi. What? You’re still stuck on WiFi?
It’s a black, iPod-sized device with its own battery. It has just one button. A green light comes on when you press it, indicating that the MiFi is powered on. A second green light starts blinking, indicating that it’s working on something. When it goes steady, presto: the MiFi has transformed itself into a bog-standard WiFi base station, capable of supporting up to five users simultaneously.
Think of MiFi as carrying your own mobile WiFi internet connection in your pocket. How easy is it to setup?
Well, I like the MiFi so I’ll merely refer to it as “a colorful experience.” The manual’s instructions were often confusing and at times contradictory.
