    My laptop always picks up secured AT&T wifi hotspots around Newport Beach. But today I found two free and open AT&T spots -- the Fashion Island food court and a hotel in Costa Mesa -- on my jailbroken iPod. Does AT&T provide free use of their wifi to their iPhone Edge customers? Could something about the jailbreak make them see me as an iPhone? Or is this just a lucky coincidence?

    AT&T and star bucks are offering their hot spots for free temporarily in response the the fires in southern California.

    It will last for a few weeks.

    umm ok. What does wifi have to do with forest fire tragedies? God is that the best thing they could do? Couldn't they donate some money to help restoration and fighting it? Sheesh what a gesture, free wifi woo...

    I almost fell out of my chair for that one.

    Almost as good as the guy who bashed Steve Jobs for 2 whole paragraphs on how crappy Windows Vista was.

    We really need to do something about Clinton and the War in Iraq.
