Starbucks' free Wi-Fi will let customers get around paywall sites for free, too
Starbucks has announced some content partners for its new Starbucks Media Network, but the exact offerings from each one aren't clear yet. The Wall Street Journal will let Starbucks customers read its paid content for free, and the other partners are Apple's iTunes, The New York Times, Patch, USA TODAY, Yahoo! and ZAGAT. Free downloads for smartphones connected to Starbucks Wi-Fi might be part of the package, too, especially if iTunes is involved. The service is expected to launch in Fall of 2010, according to ReadWriteWeb.
