Like many parents with school-age kids, you’ll find me most weekends at a neighborhood park or in the bleachers rooting for my son’s teams. Last week I was at my older son’s lacrosse game (go Seahawks!) with my younger son in tow. The little guy isn’t exactly the biggest lacrosse fan, but as luck would have it, there was a Time Warner Cable Passpoint Wi-Fi signal at the park, so he was able to get online with his tablet to pass the time. Thanks to a roaming agreement with Time Warner Cable, Boingo subscribers can now access more than 50,000 Wi-Fi hotspots just like the one at the park – absolutely free. And because it was Passpoint-enabled, my son got connected automatically, without the need for a login password or special software. Passpoint is to Wi-Fi what peanut butter is to jelly.

Today is one of the first airport posts – places and things to do when you’re waiting for your flight. At the Minneapolis / St. Paul Airport, there are a few places travelers can get away from the crowds and relax. The first is the “quiet seating area” that lines the somewhat hidden upper decks of the main passenger shopping area called The Mall. If passengers take the steps or an elevator to the second level along The Mall, they’ll find – on either side, hidden from view – dozens of couches, chairs and tables for relaxation. At the far end of The Mall is MSP’s most glamorous full service restaurant – Ike’s – and above Ike’s is another hidden area travelers can relax and work on their laptops or take a snooze. If travelers have more work to get done or want to hold a meeting, a conference call, etc., the airport has a a large conference center above Chili’s Too restaurant on The Mall. It’s a full service conference center that can accommodate 1 to 100 people. As told by Kathleen Bangs, Manager of Marketing, Minneapolis / St. Paul Airport.
