A few weeks ago, I wrote a pretty popular post about places to get free wireless internet service, which involved cafe’s, libraries, schools, etc. However, I just saw this story about a guy being charged with a felony for using a cafe’s free internet service…from his car parked outside. Turns out he was doing this almost daily, and some people started noticing this guy sitting there for a few hours every day on a computer, so the authorities were called. Although the cafe owner doesn’t really understand why he was charged, I guess the moral of the story is to actually go INTO the cafe to use their free wireless internet access, and not to sit outside in your car.
So when I mentioned getting your service from a cafe, please understand I meant for you to actually go into the cafe so you don’t get arrested standing outside.
