Why did it take 4 years for a company to decide taht this sort of thing was a good idea? all they need now is the back portion (where the actual hardware is) to separate from the PCI/Express part and contain a USB option as well.. but that would be idiotic. No, really, having that part detach would defeat the whole purpose... i was just throwing it out there.

More importantly a PC card adaptor that allows any Express card to work in a PCMCIA slot has been commercially available for a long time. Seems silly.

Totally useless in my opinion. Most people prefer the versatility of the USB modems. Laptop or Desktop? Doesn't matter with USB modems.

i understand your argument in regards to the functionality, but the thing to remember is that pcmcia and express cards are going to run faster than a usb modem.

You have absolutely no argument there. It's just that most people are going with convenience rather than a speed difference they probably won't notice anyways.

its smart they only need to stock one care for pcmcia and express sounds like a good idea

wow. too little, far too late. this would have been handy back when laptop manufacturers decided to switch to express slots unannounced back in 2005. now? it's all usb.
