Pretty telling photo here from NY. These folks are all standing outside Starbucks. A closed Starbucks.
Why? Not because there’s a new drink that everyone has to have the way Apple fans has to have their fix of the latest and greatest from Cupertino. Not because Starbucks has a new coffee flavor.
Free WiFi. Rather, working WiFi. After Sandy plowed into the Northeast, about 8 million customers were left without power. By the looks of videos and photos online, NY took a big chunk of the pounding and many were left without power.
How Starbucks still has power and working Internet connection is something that I like to know.
