That saying “the best thing since sliced bread” is out the door. I have personally given it the boot because something that much better has come along and now deserves the spot. Free WiFi. Don’t be taken by surprise when you hear something along the lines of “Wow Michael, this new gadget is the best thing since free WiFi!”
Many places offer WiFi access, but it’s hardly free. Café’s in San Francisco primarily use the ZRNet internet access for a fee of $14.95/month. As Unjustjust noted, broadband is becoming a need more than a luxury. Think about how things were when running water was first implemented, I wonder if it was also $14.95/month. Running water must have been the best thing before sliced bread.
