Plugged in Mt. Everest, Nepal (Christopher Herwig)

Coffee shops, your backyard, and Mt. Everest—now all dialed into the world wide web. Ncell, a Nepali telecom company, has installed a 3G network at the base camp of the 29,000-foot behemoth of a mountain. Previously having to depend on satellite phones to stay in touch and report problems, hikers will now be able to surf, send photos and videos, email, and make phone calls home. The once most isolated place on earth is now dialed into the world of technology, with service possibly even reaching the summit.
