wi-fi supersized

McDonald's has awarded Wayport a contract to set up wireless access at hundreds of their restaurants. This sounds like either a colossal misjudgement of the McCustomer. I don't know anyone who considers McDonald's a place to linger with the ambiance condusive to concentration. Maybe they think soccer moms will come let the young ones run on the playplace and check their email. $2.95 for two hours is okay, but I'd love to just "Wi-Fi" size my value meal.
