With the start of my new job last winter I treated myself to a mobile broadband card from Sprint. This PCMCIA card allows me to connect to the Internet while at work (or anywhere else that doesn’t have free Wi-Fi). So far I have only used it in the ThinkPad as I wasn’t able to get it to connect using the Powerbook.
