Coffee, Wine & WiFi

Restaurants and cafes represent the fastest growing segment of public Wi-Fi, according to JiWire. They estimate that 34,544 eating establishments currently offer Wi-Fi access, which is up from 16,277 a year ago. Tokyo (1,037) has the most restaurants and cafes with Wi-Fi access, followed by London (578) and Singapore (410). Within the United States, New York City (328) has the most eating establishments with Wi-Fi access, followed by San Francisco (319) and Chicago (271). Implications of this? Maybe Skype should really focus on making their mobile client better. And definite need for more WiFi-based location-specific services, and better feed readers for mobile devices.
