The mighty Andy Ihnatko reviews the new Verizon MiFi mobile broadband adapter.
The MiFi is an ingenious concept. 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.
