HARDWARE: No signal on plane

Most interesting on today’s flight.

No signal on the iPhone and no signal on the mifi while in the air.

That surprised me.

With all the fluff about cell phones on planes, they are not much use without connectivity.

NO email; NO texting; NO voice.

Hmmm, have to rethink everything.

RANT: Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner

Geithner Heads to Private Equity
Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, one of the architects of the federal government’s rescue of the financial system, is joining private-equity firm Warburg Pincus.

Mr. Geithner, who has spent most of his career outside the private sector, said in an interview he plans to start in March at the New York-based firm, known for its role in buyouts of companies including Bausch & Lomb, Neiman Marcus Group and stadium concessionaire Aramark Corp.

At Warburg, he will serve as president and managing director.
