2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Blogging at 70 mph

March 26, 2012


That's right, I'm blogging to you from our 2012 Audi A8L traveling 65+mph down the freeway in Northern California. Obviously I'm not driving at the same time, Editor JayKav is behind the wheel. But I just wanted to demonstrate how the Audi's wifi hot spot is working out.

Sometimes the loading times for Web pages and files/pictures lag as it's dependent on whether the car gets a strong 3G signal. Varies wildly on the stretch of I-5 from NorCal to SoCal. (Don't bother trying when it dips to 2G.) But otherwise, it's so cool! I even IM'd editor Mike Magrath from my laptop while traveling 65 mph on the 580 up near Livermore. His reaction? "That's kind of rad. We're living in the future." Yes, we are.

I've got the massage function going, the heated seat on high and am connected to the Interwebs. I'm in heaven. Now if only I didn't get so carsick. Erp!
