Wi Fi Internet Access In Your Car Courtesy of Cadillac

Cadillac Wi Fi InternetThe news that Cadillac is including a feature to allow you to have Wi Fi Internet access in your car at all times for only 30 bucks a month makes me happy and angry at the same time.

Cadillac has announced the availability of an in-car wireless Internet option on its CTS sport sedan beginning in April. The new option will be called Cadillac WiFi by Autonet and be dealer-installed. The device itself will have an MSRP of $499, and the service will cost $29 per month.

I’m happy because technology has grown from cars like this before. The earliest mobile phones were car phones before battery life was stable enough to last. The idea that EVERY car will come equipped with Wi Fi makes me very hopeful.

Then again, it makes me angry. I wouldn’t need to have Wi Fi in my car if my stupid cellphone had the capability to share its Internet connectivity with my laptop. Why do they expect me to pay an extra 30 bucks a month just to do what my cellphone should be able to do already?!

Cadillac has a SMALL window to provide this in-car wireless option. Soon we will have a constant stream of connectivity and Autonet will seem as silly as car phones do today.
