It's about freakin' time

So Starbucks has finally seen the light and will be offering free wifi in their stores starting this spring. It's only 2 hours per day, so you can't plunk yourself down and leech off their internet from morning 'till night, but it's a helluva lot better than the $10 minimum you used to have to pay to get internet access at a Starbucks store. I guess they finally realized that if customers have to pay for internet (and they don't think the coffee is all that great, either), they're just going to go to the little local place around the corner. I guess now I have an excuse to go sit in the lovely burnt-orange velvet chairs at the Starbucks around the corner from my house :-)
