2012 Ford Explorer: Convenient Mobile Office

April 19, 2012

mobile_office2_1600.jpg The Time Warner internet service in my new house has been anything but reliable, and after three outages in four days, it was finally time to request a visit from a technician instead of continuing to troubleshoot the problem over the phone.

Problem is, with an intermittent connection, how can you work from home while waiting for the tech to show up?

This morning's answer was my local McDonald's. I wasn't up for sitting inside, but parking next to the building got me close enough to connect to their public wi-fi.

The Explorer's front seat is spacious enough, so if I put the seat in the far-back position, I have room for my laptop flat on my lap. And the center console makes a great mouse pad.

Much easier than working on an airplane, for sure.
