    So I'm currently at work and went online and saw that Office Depot was selling 16G for $199. So I drove to the nearest one and picked it up. Came back, plugged it up, and was ready to play. Well apparently you NEED wifi initially. I thought maybe I could start things off over bridge on my 9800. So what's killing me? I have to wait til I get home to play :-(

    We certainly wouldn't be able to activate these at work...gov't doesn't allow WiFi on its networks.

    Lol. I sat here and watched the led flash green and now solid green. Knowing she's ready to go makes this wait even worse. Tele-commuting sounds tempting right about now ;-)

    bad idea.. Starbucks require u to go onto login page after u reset u cant get into login page (when u set up u need to reset) and u'll get stuck. Go home its worth the wait not to have it mess up on u

    We have wifi (different government) but have to use Nortel Contivity to connect.

    According to this article I have VPN now but I can't seem to locate it on my Playbook.

    I do not believe that there is not a Starbucks in your immediate vicinity, like 30 feet at most. At least, it seems that way, here in Seattle!!!
