I do love GoGo's inflight service, even if they are blocking VoIP. On my "up the state" commute, three times this week, I've actually used it only once first due to a lack of the in seat power ( it was a defective outlet) on my Virgin America flight on Thursday, and my error in grabbing my uncharged Mac Book Air, but today I used it almost non-stop once we hit the required altitude.
For me, the airplane is an extension of my work life. I chatted with Karl Good, Truphone's Director of Consumer apps who I found was working on something on a Sunday about his recent Android release then tapped away with eComm mind-behind Lee Dryburgh and caught up on some exciting news that will be forthcoming regarding some topics and speakers.
Of course I also did the requisite email checking, mailing and web surfing, but most of all I actually sat back and read a book.
Here's the net net. The peace of mind, knowing I can be in touch vs. out of touch makes the $5.95 cost for GoGo on a short hop a pleasure. Add to that the in-seat power keeps my Air nice and charged, ready for a morning of breakfast, some fresh air and a view of the Bay from where I will be most of the day working away before meeting up with friends in SF.
