    Most of my grandkids have smart phones and when they come over they get on my wifi. It the same way with my laptop or tablet, I am always looking for hotspots when I am out and about. Anin't life grand. The whole world wants to be moblie.

    I carry a hotspot in my pocket, using a mobile hotspot on a phone is quicker and easier than finding decent hotspots out and about.I tether my tablet or laptop when ever I am travelling or out and about and need web access.

    I have this setting on my Asus Tablet for setting up a portable hotspot, but I have never used it and don't know how. Is this what you are talking about when you say carrying a hotspot in your poket.

    Most 3g devices have the ability to set up a personal hotspot your screen shot shows where you set it up, it takes only a few seconds to do an devises use the hotspot just like any other WiFi connection.

    You do need to be aware of your mobile data plan's allocated data allowance and the cost of additional usage.

    I have two on account SIM's that give me 10GB per month

    Than's very interesting. Thanks for the info.
    Getting back on subject, I have been watching all the latest videos from CES and with the show and the Internet coverage of the show, Ubuntu and the smart phone is making a good showing. Mark has mention phones and tablets, but I haven't seen much on tablets yet. I am on my Android tablet right now, and I would love to be running Ubuntu. It isn't that I don't like Android it's that I just like Ubuntu better. I think Ubuntu with Unity would be great on this thing.

    Are there any particular videos you recommend? I haven't seen them all and those I've seen looks almost the same. Is there anyone showing or revealing something the others don't do?

    I know. The problem is not to find them, it's to find the ones giving more info than the others! Like these.
