    Awesome.

    "Would you like some WiFi with your fries?"

    I'd probably go into Mickey D's just for free WiFi.

    Oh and I wonder what kind of internet content filter they will have set up. Heaven forbid a family restaurant like McDonald's would have uncensored internet! :eek:

    Bizarre, here in Argentina that's no news at all, there are Mcdonalds with computers and nintendo64s
    Though, the internet used is not wireless, but broadband instead (512k or 1mb i think)
