Work smarter, not harder
Mobile GPRS technology means you can get online where, when and how you want - from a park bench, a bus or your grandmas front room.
Abandon your workplace...but not your principles
Make the most of new technology. But don't work yourself into the ground! Just because the GC75 PC Card allows you to work all the time and anywhere, doesnt mean you should! Sometimes you just have to let go. Take a break - disconnect.
There are good places to go online...
With mobile Internet connection, the sky is quite literally the limit when looking for places to get online.
Tired of dull public transport journeys? Or, even worse, sick of waiting for that transport to turn up? Well, wave goodbye to boredom. Get entertained, get some work done, get online.
And isn't it funny how efficient you get when the atmosphere around you is relaxed? That's why parks, cafés and bars are such great places to hook up to your company network from.
Finally, let's not forget those a-lot-of-words-but-oh-so-little-substance meetings we all have to endure every now and then. Not a bad time to clear your emails or book your next holiday.
...and there are bad places to go online
There are also locations and times when getting online probably is best avoided. Stay sensitive to people around you - what interests you, may not interest them. You don't want to get them annoyed, question your state of mind or make use of what is on your laptop screen.
Romantic occasions can do without that annoying "you've got mail" sound. And there's no need for getting online on weddings - neither your own nor anyone else's. Your attention is better needed elsewhere then.
Safety and downloading don't always mix. Stay off the web while you're crossing a road or cruising down the motorway in your car.
Also, remember to make the choice between getting wet and getting online. Mobile communication is not designed for baths or showers. However, this is not an excuse to wash less and surf more - theres room for both!
Modern life demands that you work hard, think fast, and remain constantly connected while on the move. The GC75 PC Card Modem has the capability to live up to those demands. It offers powerful, convenient, always-on connectivity, giving you the space to stay one step ahead of the game.
Stay Free! Stay Connected!

Slip your GC75 PC Card in and stay free.
The GC75 PC Card helps you to make better use of your time.

High data transfer speeds and the possibility to choose operating mode - GPRS, HSCSD or CSD - are some of the benefits with the GC75 PC Card.
