Just when you thought there was one place where one could find respite from the information highway, along came the capability to connect to the interweb above the clouds.
It seems the super information highway knows no boundaries. Yes, it’s  Wi-Fi in the sky. And, more than a modern accessory, some seem to think it’s a necessity!
We think it’s a recipe for etiquette horror even if, according to one airline analyst speaking in the Boston Globe, “in today’s tough business climate, in-flight Wi-Fi is as essential as the beverage cart”. Hmmm, martini or surfing the interweb. Choices, choices.
