Free Wi-Fi @ Starbucks From Bell

If you're lucky (or unlucky) enough to be a Bell internet customer you can now get free Wi-Fi internet access at 650 Starbucks arcoss Canada.

I guess Bell feels sorry for us since the CRTC sided with Bell over their policy of internet throttling.

Wii Wi-Fi

Nintendo Wii Fanboy reported that Nintendo is discontinuing the Wi-Fi usb dongle.

If you don't have a wireless home router, I'm sure you could snag one cheap before they are gone.

You can also use this with your DS for online play and to download content. I couldn't imagine my Wii without being able to watch YouTube it's so practical.

Now you have no excuse not to spend a fortune on Virtual Console games. I know I have.

Too Zune

There's this great clip of Leo Laporte of TWIT on what seems like Indigital (I haven't watched the latest epsiode yet from REV3 yet) going nutsoid (for Leo anyway) about the Micro$oft Zune.

Leo makes some great reasons why not to buy it like how M$ is paying record labels a percentage of sale of the players.

But I don't agree with him on the downsides of the wi-fi though. What players can buy songs over wi-fi or surf the web… ah none. It's kind of cool that you could share songs (pictures, video)  with fellow Zuners, the downside is trying to find one :-).

He's right about the DRM being a pain, but that's true of any closed music store system. People have no problem getting nailed to IPod DRM but the reason they are all off on the Zune is that they know their investment in ITunes is useless outside of the IPod. I just hope for all those IPoders ITunes never dies or they are stuck with a capital "I". Another downside to ITunes is for the time being able to buy videos is solely an American pleasure. So bittorent still has a place in my heart.
