Get connect anywhere

I recently started using a great tool to get connected anywhere. It's called iPassConnect by iPass. We use it internally at my company and it has become a key tool for me on my trips.
Whenever I take my laptop with me on a trip, I can launch the client (windows or PDA) application and get a list of public (and partner) WiFi providers and Dial-up providers.
Instead of keeping a long list of dial-up ISP's, or turning on my wireless card in hope of getting access to an Open WiFi network, iPass does it for me. When you travel, you just specify your geographic location, then select a provider from the list, and login with your credentials. It even starts the VPN client for you once you are connected. It's great.
For those of us who don't have a 3G card on the laptop, the benefit is huge. It's not free, though!
