Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Q-Wireless, the same company that's helping to bring you Wi-Fi and cell service in subway stations, is now tackling livery cabs with a plan to equip 1,000 cars by fall, eventually overrunning our streets with "tens of thousands" of fewer chances to ever be away from the Internet.
