Free WiFi at the Bookstore

According to MacWorld, Barnes & Noble bookstores along with AT&T have decided to make their WiFi access free to anyone in their bookstores nationwide. Previously, WiFi access at the bookstores was only available as a pay for service through At&T.Why are these two companies being so generous? Well, probably not because they are trying to be nice. Barnes & Noble has launched an e-book service similar to the Amazon Kindle offering, and is ramping up to compete against the behemoth book seller. And how could they get you to buy an e-book from them if you have to pay to get WiFi in the first place?And you thought they were just trying to help you out during a poor economy? C'mon folks. Let's get real!At any rate, it's a win for any business person needing to get online while traveling. Just hop into your nearest Barnes & Noble and score some free WiFi access! Nobody said you had to buy an e-book from them!To Your Success,Tim

They confirmed the best time to buy a laptop is: back to school time or August and September.Other good times to purchase are November (black Friday) and April. Prices ranged from a high of $580 in July to below $500 in April.So if you are contemplating a laptop purchase, get your credit card warmed up.
