Seen as Wifi In McDonalds has gone free now it will be quite good for Iphone/Touch users. (aswell as other wifi devices)

If you go in the morning time you quite often see businessmen using their laptops whilst sipping coffee.

I'd feel worried whipping my Touch out an the average McDonalds to be honest. Too much of a muggers dream...

That sounds pretty awesome

Having said that though does anyone know what their privacy policy is? I'm pretty sure that McDonalds is getting more out of this than selling you a few cheap burgers or a coffee. If they are monitering/gathering and analysing the data that's been used by their customers they could build detailed profiles. Free Wi-Fi sounds like a great honeypot.

The password thing was a pain in the arse. I get free Openzone with my broadband but having to remember the crazy username and password was a nightmare - especially trying to type it in to the ipod touch!!!!

hahaha You make me laugh.

I reported them as they were totally off topic and in my view abuse to another member. I never said i was a mod, thats the whole point of the alert feature. and in this case, A mod decided to remove the posts.
