    I went to the City Hall parking lot where I live because I knew it was a hot spot (low reception) and then I went to McDonald's because they have a free wifi sign. I got lunch and tired to connect. I did not know you needed to ask for a coupon code to connect.

    I emailed myself from Yahoo mail to Gmail. I also went to a message board and posted on there are it was pretty cool. A little awkward typing on it but still very cool.

    I think the beaches around here may have free Wifi. I know I connected once via my PC on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

    You can ask for a coupon to connect from McDonalds? Is it free? I always thought you had to pay them money for their wireless plan.

    If it says "free wifi" outside it is free. Some paces charge. When I was in NJ they charged (I never used it there) here is free in a few places.

    It's called a coupon, because that the mode you have to pick to imput the code on the McD website when you log in to their wifi.

    :confused: The point he's trying to make is that most people think the term iPod Touch is the only suitable term. iTouch is blasphemy or something, let alone Itouch, which is an eye sore.

    Just to clarify, you're using a new Touch? How was the reception and everything?

    Its 1st gen.

    The reception was very good at the McD. I also used public wifi in front of city hall, but the signal was weak, it was slower but it still worked.

    I don't care at all for the "OMG it's not iTouch!" thing, but technically they are right. The actual product is called an iPod touch not iTouch, while the phone really is called an iPhone. So your example...fails.

    No- don't call an iPhone an iNe.:eek:

    Doesn't look too good with the 2nd, third, and fourth letters cut out/, does it??? :) Call it the Touch or iPod Touch, makes you sound less like a molester than "iTouch" :p
