Starbucks just announced that starting July 1st, they'll be offering "Free. 1 click. No registration WIFI at all US locations." Even though Starbucks is ubiquitous, using their internet was always an onerous process, requiring the purchase of a coffee card and other hoops to jump through. Yeah, it's a market share grab, trying to compete with independent coffee shops and the likes of McDonald's and their McCafes. but good luck finding a free table at Starbucks ever again!
