Would You Like Free Wi-fi With That Latte?

As an AT&T user both at home and on my cell, and a frequenter of Starbucks, I was intrigued when a twitterbuddy mentioned that the former will be taking over the wi-fi presence in the latter, beginning in Q2 of 2008.

I mean, I have a cell card should I desperately need to work online from a cafe, but still…

I was a little dubious, however, so I did a quick search and found articles in MacWorld and the like all supporting this information, as well as this piece from Gizmodo.

Even better? Just having a Starbucks card gets you two free hours of access a day, no purchase required.

Q2 cannot come soon enough. (Oh, wait, we’re almost there.)

  1. WOO! Love the hair AND the layout! It’s fabulous.

    I’ve read about people blogging from Starbucks, and since I don’t have a laptop I only recently became aware that THEY CHARGE! I was all WHAT? The little bohunk coffee shop by my house has free wifi AND a computer you can use as long as you buy a coffee.

    You’d think people spent ENOUGH $$ at Starbucks to warrant some free wifi with coffee purchase.

    Is all I’m saying.
    Bleh.
