Verizon's New Ad Flogs MiFi/iPad Mash-Up

This video shows how amagical things will get once you start toting your MiFi wi-fi hotspot around the house. You’ll be in a new place! You’ll surf the Internet! You’ll avoid the pain of living!

To be honest, the deal actually sounds pretty good. The MiFi is a nice little piece of kit and you can add up to five devices to it for family fun. However, AT&T charges $14.99 a month for 250MB of iPad 3G service and the MiFi deal costs $50 a month for 5GB of MiFi service so I’m kind of at a loss which horse to bet on. I’ve never used up by 250MB service (in fact, I think I’m going to turn it off) but then again I know I won’t use up the 5GB plan.
