I know where my office away from home is: Barnes & Noble, which yesterday started offering free wifi to customers. The bookseller promises, “No fees. No charges. Just log on.” Sweet!
B&N hopes that free wifi will encourage shoppers to purchase books online when they are sold out in the store.
Of course, this will take a lot of business away from Starbucks, which offers 2 free hours of wifi to customers who register their Starbucks card. The move will force other retailers to offer free wifi, which is good for consumers!
