uh - hasn't Starbucks had free WiFi for, like, 5 years now?

This change is a no-brainer. It seems like the executives at Starbucks are lacking common sense.

If the executives at Starbucks had any common sense, they never would have charged for Wi-Fi services.

Okay, it's great they are offering free wifi, but according to the article, only certain content is free. So you have to pay for anything else? I'll bet that MSNBC and CNN will be free, but we'll have to pay for Fox News or anything else conservative.
