FordLink Gives Pickup Truck Drivers Web Access, More

You know wireless broadband is getting ubiquitous when even Ford pickup trucks are equipped with tablet PCs hooked up to the net. That's the case with Ford, launching its FordLink system for F-series pickups that consists of a tablet PC running Windows XP that's connected to the vast tubes of the Interwebs.

If you want to go all-out, you can get it with GPS, too, along with a full complement of small business management software and even a printer. Here's hoping those who want to get some office work done in the driver's seat accomplish most of their ministrations at stoplights and parked in driveways, and not on a two-lane blacktop at 80mph.
