Just like Rockwell Collins, Airbase is located at select airports. http://www.airbaseservices.com/ I'm sure there will be an Airbase representative at each flight to take the carts on/off planes. Just like Rockwell/Collins, they currently do that on each flight their IFE are on.

Like I said before, everything is in it's testing mode. I'm sure Airbase and American will get most of the kinks out before they actually are on most flights. Flight crews haven't even been trained on these devices yet.

So, just sit back and relax and enjoy the flight....regardless of how you get your entertainment from the palm of one hand, and hold your hot nuts in the other.
