Starbucks under Wi-Fi attack

One amusing episode from yesterday at the Wireless Event was Robert Lang of Fon, the Wi-Fi sharing "community", revealing that his company is encouraging Foneros (people with Fon routers) who live near a Starbucks to aim their signals straight into the beanshop. Seeing as Fon's access is somewhat cheaper than T-Mobile's (the operator with the Starbucks franchise), this makes for an interesting and possibly effective guerilla tactic.
