Southwest plans high-speed Internet trials

Southwest plans high-speed Internet trials | Geek Gestalt - A blog by Daniel Terdiman - CNET "Southwest Airlines announced Wednesday that it plans to begin trials of satellite-to-airplane broadband Internet service sometime this summer."

That's all well and good but for two things -- you can barely use a Palm Treo in the cramped seats on Southwest, and they provide no power outlets for your computer onboard.  I cannot imagine trying to weasel your 15" MacPro out from under the seat in front of you and unfold it on the 9" x 7" 'tray table'.  

Maybe this is going to drive adoption of the micro- miniature EEE PC ($300) or OQO ($2500) hand-top computers?
