Finally, Verizon Has a USB Dongle for EVDO!

I wish they had this when I was getting my EVDO set up several months ago. Not because of the EVDO Rev A, which is a nice bonus, but rather an EVDO card that uses USB instead of PC-Card. Why? Because I have a MacBook (in addition to several PCs).

Of course, what irritates me is that my PC-Card is essentially a USB hub all it’s own that connects to a serial device of some sort. That’s why it is pathetically easy for me to use the card on Linux as well, but getting the PC-Card to the Mac is a bit challenging. I’ve looked up USB-to-PC-Card adapters. They are rare, and expensive.
