Barnes & Noble offer free WiFi in stores

ZDNet reports that Barnes & Noble have teamed with AT&T to offer free WiFi access in their stores nation-wide.  They've done away with subscription fees at the stores and will not require a purchase to enjoy it there.

I've always enjoyed going to B&N and while it'll be nice to be able to take my old laptop there to enjoy the Wi-Fi , I've not needed it when I had my Kindle, with its own always available, albeit slowww (but free), cellular wireless access.  But it'll be another reason to visit there.  May B&N do well, always be available (unlike Borders) and keep Amazon on its toes.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
