Free Surfing for Ricochet Subscribers

by Jeff Carlson

Free Surfing for Ricochet Subscribers -- Owners of Metricom's Ricochet wireless modems can take advantage of a free Web browsing boost thanks to a recent deal with Connectix. (See "Tied Down No More: The Ricochet Wireless Modem" in TidBITS-366 for details on the Ricochet modem.) Metricom is offering a free downloadable copy of Connectix's Surf Express, software that caches Web pages more efficiently than current Web browsers. The deal is for current and future Ricochet subscribers; you must provide your modem's serial number and your billing ZIP code for validation before downloading the 1.8 MB file. [JLC]
