I am in between meetings near the Microsoft Campus today and wanted a coffee so I headed to a nearby Starbucks.  I wanted to check my e-mail, ut I had given up my T-Mobile account (at $40/month) because there is so much free wireless in my neighborhood. I wrestled with spending $10 for a day pass just to check e-mail when I noticed that Vista users would get a free trial to T-Mobile hotspots.

I took the trial and I got a free month of access. No credit card required (so no nasty…trial, but we’ll bill you if you forget to cancel nonsense).   I did have to install an ActiveX component to check to see if IE7/Vista was in use.  Voila…free e-mail checking…
