Wi-Fi coming to a train near you
Google and Yahoo have duelling Wi-Fi buses to shuttle their workers in productive comfort to their Silicon Valley campuses. But soon, Bay Area train commuters will enjoy the same privilege of en-route Internet access, DailyWireless reports.

CalTrain, the San Francisco-to-San Jose train operator, has tested Wi-Fi on its trains, making it the first commuter-rail operator in the United States to offer Wi-Fi. Abroad, train operators in the UK and Japan are also planning to add wireless Internet access. A more productive commute by train may well lure more people out of their cars -- and just in time, as a resurgent Valley economy is once again clogging Highway 101.
