The Boston Globe has published an interesting article regarding Wi-Fi 802.11 wireless Internet slowing becoming mainstream with Starbucks leading the way giving customers the option of WLAN on their mobile PC devices as they sip cups of coffee and check their emails - or use the cafes as business meeting places, as was the basis for this article. Though with everything in life, it comes at a cost - $29.99 to be exact which entitles you to unlimited monthly access to Starbuck's Wi-Fi network around the United States.


Every Monday evening, the three founders of FloSpace converge on a Starbucks at Arlington Center, sign onto the store's high-speed wireless network, and get down to business. They may not have their own office yet, but they do have a favorite table.
