Last night it was an Internet sandwich shop; today it is wireless Internet at Whole Foods Market.
It seems that more businesses are offering free Internet access as a perk for having your business. If this keeps up, I wouldn't be surprised to see open, public wireless paid for by local government in the next five to ten years.
I had to install a new server for an electrical service company in Glendale today. I left the client at 1 P.M., and as I had such a long drive home, I might as well stop for lunch. Cathy & I were looking for a Whole Foods Market to purchase jasmine oil, so I went to the Glendale location.
Well, Whole Foods Market offers free wireless Internet (open, unencrypted proxy) for your shopping experience... Cathy called, and she was on her way to the Pasadena store! I'll be leaving here to meet her and eat lunch together. Isn't that grand? It is acutally kinda romantic, meeting for lunch in the middle of the workday. :-)
Cathy just called to tell me to avoid the 605 South after lunch. Isn't that sweet?
