Back to California

Boeing “777-300ER”:http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2003/q1/nr_030224g.html is a nice plane. Or may be it’s the options chosen by EVA. What I like:

* Entertainment. It’s a 3 hours flight to Taipei, yet you have 6 movies and a few other programs to choose from. And they don’t just run like TV so you end up being able to finish just one. This has vidoe on demand. I can start each program whenever I want, fast forward or pause when I need to visit the restroom. Oh, and did I mentioned it has touch screen too? Great for playing ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’.
* Sensor at water tub.
* My neck doesn’t hurt after 3 hours. However they managed that, I don’t care.

Too bad I only got to ride the thing for only 3 hours, and was switched back to an old 747-300 on the section to San Francisco.

P.S. As the plane descent onto CKS airport, it just strike me how great Google Earth really is. I mean, if LCD screen would come at 200dpi, I wouldn’t need to peer out any plane window ever again.

P.P.S. Since I’m here, should I go to “Engadget Meetup”:http://meta.engadget.com/entry/1234000873059648/ tomorrow? Hmm…
