Out and About: Free wireless internet!

Go get your internet on at Starbucks!  Some locations are open 24 hours, here's the address where you can find a location near you: http://www.starbucks.com/store-locator

Here are some other places that have free wireless (out where I live at least):
-Biggby Coffee
-Caribou Coffee
-Borders Books
-Barnes and Noble Book Sellers
-Local Libraries

(If you know of more, post what they are and what area they're in for us)

Something fun my friends and I do at some of the places above is all bring our laptops and play online scrabble together-I think that might be called a Local Area Connection or LAN party!  Here's the site for free online, mulitplayer games: http://www.pogo.com/

If you don't have a mobile computer and want to have a LAN party, meet up at the library-yes it IS cool...and clever ;)


  1. In SE Michigan, many of the McDonald's have free wi-fi now.

  2. You are right and thanks for your comment! This is what I found on their site:

    With free Wi-Fi at more than 11,500 participating restaurants, customers can access the Internet using their laptops or PDAs at no charge. So grab a McCafé Latte and log on...it’s on us! Just one more thing to love about McDonald's.

    Here's where you can go to type in your zip and find a hot spot near you:
