Man Charged For Not Buying Coffee at Wi-Fi Hotspot
 
 

The manager of a little coffee shop in Vancouver, Washington called the cops because a man parked his truck in the parking lot to access their free wireless Internet. The manager, Emily Pranger, finally decided to call 911 after months of witnessing Alex Smith use their Wi-Fi services without buying anything from the shop.

Police came to the location and told Smith to stop freeloading off of the coffee shop's wireless Internet service. When Smith continued to do so, the cops charged him with theft of services.So just remember this the next time you enter Starbucks with your laptop. You better buy that grande frappuccino you're debating about, otherwise you may end up in the back seat of a car with metal caged wires in it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
