Connexion from Boeing seems to have crash-landed

Us_airlines_boeing_connexionAfter six years of losses and a rumored billion dollars in investment, it appears that Boeing might be shutting down its Connexion service which provides in-flight Internet access. Having just flown last weekend, I easily got by without any Internet access during my 2.5 hours of flight time each way. This comes from someone who pumps up to 2 GB of monthly bandwidth through an  EV-DO connection and who knows what through the DSL at home. For flights, I just download some media in advance, either eBooks, movies or podcasts and just consume the stored media. As "cool" as it is to have connectivity in the sky, I see it as a limited productivity gainer, but maybe that’s just me.
