Project # 4
I decided to go to Starbucks in Carrollton and interviewed Justin, a barista. Starbucks used to require payment for their internet, but just recently switched to free access. Because of the switch, they do not have to charge for access, and there are no security measures that Justin knew of. The good consequences of being a wireless hotspot, Justin thinks, is that it brings in more business and encourages people to stay longer than they normally would. That means these customers are buying more Starbuck’s products and making relationships with people there, which brings them back. Justin could not think of any negative consequences of having wireless access in his store.
