Wired Underground

Thanks to Jon J for giving me the heads up that commuters in Seoul will have fun and games on their subway, at least until the 19th August

The generous folk at Samsung and Korea Telecoms have fitted two cars from Seoul's number 2 line train with some WiBro-enabled Samsung Q45 laptops and Q1 Ultra UMPCs. Apparently they're free to use from 11am till 5pm every day.

There's a fairly errr interesting translation of the story
here, or check out Engadget for their take.

Playing backgammon on the Tube

That's really 21st century subway entertainment, as we can just about manage a snatched game of backgammon on the Tube though.

Wonder if Ken will set aside some carriages on the Tube for sponsored games? I'm sure he'd get a lot of fans if he did.
