Me and my buddy headed over to the local B+N last night intent on talking some business and jumping on the net with his laptop. Very much to our suprise, connecting to the network only brought us to a logon page in which you had to regester to use the net connection. We were both astonished, not only the fact that they charged for their net connetion, but because they charged an arm and a leg. 20$ for a month! Thats half the price of my cable connection, and you can only use it when you're in the store! Anyone else think that is ridiculous? I mean, i've never heard of a public wi-fi spot that wasn't free. The way I see it, we're in their store, buying their stuff. They shouldn't charge extra. The wi-fi should be like an attraction at an amusement park, something that draws people to the store. Many hotels have wi-fi networks, and they don't ever charge any extra. It comes complimentary with the room. I dunno. I guess it kinda bugged me.
