    As we reminded you all yesterday, today is the big (or should we say ‘vente’?) day caffiene addicted, “need-to-get-out-of-the-apartment”, always-connected, paying-too-much-for-coffee masses (in the US and Canada only) have been waiting for years – free WiFi at Starbucks.

    So, we’d like to know, will this change your caffiene drinking habits at all? Will you ditch your local corner cafe (that’s been offering free WiFi for years) in favor of the black and green? Did you buy a WiFi-only iPad anticipating just this very day?

    Also, we’d certainly like to hear how the actual technical implementation of this is working for everyone. Since all Starbucks are already equipped with WiFi, we’re expecting this to not be a problem, but still, we’d like to hear your feedback.

    So, go get a coffee, will you?
