Futurama, Fry Drinks 100 Cups of Coffee

This is what will happen after 100 cups of coffee.

Prediction: Starbucks Wi-Fi will soon be free

Starbucks, the giant coffee chain with 13,168 locations worldwide, was a pioneer in rolling out wireless Internet access for customers. Along with partners T-Mobile and Hewlett-Packard, the company offers Wi-Fi for those who pay either a one-time connection fee or a monthly fee for all the Wi-Fi you can handle.

When Starbucks introduced for-pay Wi-Fi in 2002, it seemed like a great deal (especially for business customers who could expense it). But five years later, the model appears old and stale and ready for a complete overhaul.

Prediction: Starbucks will start rolling out free Wi-Fi access within one year.
