Just what we need: more Wi-Fi to foul up our genes and mutate our babies! AT&T is now blanketing Time Square and parts of San Francisco with public Wi-FI (N.B. “public” != free. You still have to pay or be an AT&T subscriber.) However, the best thing is that it will effect areas with the worst AT&T data coverage, which will severely improve your iPhone experience in those areas.
Huge deal? No, but at least you’ll be able to Facetime from Times Square while your family from Wisconsin ogles at the baked goods and sandwiches in the window of the Roxy’s Deli and then, inevitably, walks over to McDonalds because its the only place you all can agree on.
