Pakistan attempts to block YouTube

Most of the world's Internet users lost access to YouTube for several hours yesterday after an attempt by Pakistan's government to block access in that country affected other countries.

After being on one of the new buses, it's going to be tough to go back to one of the older buses. The first "connected bus" is on the 10 Townsend line.

The bus is easy to spot because it's green on the outside and inside. It's called the "connected bus" because it connects to the internet and other buses. Muni and Cisco Systems teamed up to put together the Wi-Fi access and touch screen maps -- connecting information all on board. It is extremely easy to operate. The first passenger to be on the bus was very excited.

"I think that's a cool idea. We need to be encouraging the public to use public transit. So I think that's good," said Emily Kilpatrick, first "connected bus" rider.

"Can you see yourself using Wi-Fi on Muni?" asked ABC7's Terry McSweeney.

"Sure," said Kilpatrick.

"A lot?" asked McSweeney.

"I don't know about that, but we'll see," said Kilpatrick.

Mayor Newsom says at $10,000 dollars a pop, this is future of buses in San Francisco.
