Texas brings WiFi to rest stops

We're tempted to make some lame joke having to do with cowboys, laptops and horses (or some bad pun like "WiFi Noon"), but we have to admit we're a little impressed that the Texas Department of Transportation is bringing WiFi to 102 highway rest stops across the state. Service is being provided by Coach Connect, an Austin company (figures) that provides hotspots for RV parks and campgrounds, which we're all about. Who wants to get away and commune with nature without being able to check email or download some tunes?
