"There's big Starbucks news today that may help customers more easily swallow those venti lattes which can cost more than $5 in some places - the chain is going to offer unlimited free Wi-Fi at all its U.S. locations starting July 1."
They are calling it the Starbucks Digital Network, and instead of having to purchase something tied to your Starbucks registration to get a few hours of wi-fi, starting on July 1st you will get unlimited free wi-fi access. Starbucks is teaming up with Yahoo! to create the portal, and they will offer access to various content providers including, among others, Apple iTunes, The New York Times, Patch, USA TODAY, The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! and ZAGAT.
