Verizon MiFi

Yesterday I picked up a Verizon MiFi.

It’s a 3g modem and a WiFi router inside a very tiny package. It’s smaller than the iphone.  And it runs off a battery – about 4 hours in use or 40 hours on standby.

It’s very simple to use. Press the power button and that’s it. The MiFi automatically connects to Verizon’s 3g network and I can share it with up to 5 WiFi enabled devices. I tested it with two macbooks and an iphone at the same time. No issues.

This is going to be a big help on family vacations.

As Jack pointed out, if you see an access point named “Bijan MiFi” you’ll know that I’m around.
