Dow Jones’ D6 conference is three days long, and we’ve seen all of one presentation so far. But we already know what product we’re most impressed by: That’d be the EVDO wireless cards that our smarter bloggy/press colleagues have brought with them, which allow them to open up their laptop and file from wherever they’d like.
What about Wi-fi? you ask. Isn’t a cutting-edge tech conference like D wired from end to end? Nope, it’s not. Specifically, the main ballroom, where all the bold-faced names are presenting, is a dead zone. We gather this is intentional — so that the likes of us don’t disrupt the audience with our incessant hunting and pecking at our keyboards. So instead, we’re watching a good chunk of the D conference live — but on TV — in an adjoining press room.
