Express Card arriving faster

PCMCIA and PC Card are showing their age; since WiFi started to come as standard I haven't used the PC Card socket for anything except a 3G data card and I can't wait for built-in data radios because the power management will be so much better. But if your new notebook has an Express Card slot instead, 3G, HSDPA, EVDO and other high speed data cards are starting to come through - or at least the radio modules that can be built-in or used as Express Cards are getting certified. Apple's a bit ahead of the curve on Express Card - as it was with USB and dropping the floppy - but it's at the inconvenient rather than impossible to live with stage.
