LIve blogging from Tech Expo

At Sam Houston Race Park emceeing a day-long technology expo focusing on IP solutions. Total Technologies and ShoreTel are hosting. About 300 IT folks are here learning about VoIP and other products.

Saw that Walt Mossberg reviewed the MacBook Air. His conclusions:
If you value thinness, and a large screen and keyboard in a subnotebook, and
don’t watch DVDs on planes or require spare batteries, the MacBook Air might be
just the ticket. But if you rely on spare batteries, expect the usual array of
ports, or like to play DVDs on planes, this isn’t the computer to buy.

I haven't even seen the device yet and that's roughly how I summed it up last week on my show.

Good news for AT&T customers and the broadband industry in general. The San Antonio-based company announced it is boosting speeds - up to 10 Mbps downstream and up to 1.5 Mbps upstream. It will be available in February for $55 a month when bundled with U-verse. And you know I am a big fan of U-verse.

Customers also gain access to its WiFi network with free unlimited connectivity at more than 10,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots. Wish they had a WiFi spot up here at the race track. I'm logged on via AT&T's accelerated data card. Pretty fast but a WiFi would be sweeter.

I'm here until 3:30pm. Drop on by if you'd like or update the comments sections with any breaking news.
