Coming Soon: Go To Starbucks, Get Free Apple/Yahoo Content

If you visit any Starbucks in the country, you already get free unlimited Wi-Fi access. Now, you'll get even more stuff for free.

The coffee house giant has just inked a new deal with Yahoo and Apple, a deal that will actually be financially beneficial to all of those companies and the customer. Imagine that.

As part of the new deal, users who tap into the Starbucks network will now see a special Yahoo-powered landing page by default when they open their browser. This portal will offer users the latest news, as well as streaming video and music.

Additionally, Yahoo will give these customers, exclusively, free e-book downloads, which will change on a rotating basis.

As an extra bonus to people who are willing to pay $8 for a frappuccino, Apple will instantly offer people who sign into a Starbucks Wi-Fi network a free iTunes download for the Starbucks "song of the week."

The weekly song promotion began years ago between Apple and Starbucks. Users have for a while been able to grab a special download card from Starbucks, giving them a code that could be redeemed for the song. The new deal makes that promotion even more seamless, offering the download directly to Starbucks-Wi-Fi-connected computers.

Of course, there is a catch. That Yahoo portal will also link users to areas where they can download premium content and also buy stuff online. This is where Starbucks gets the goods - any sales that go through this portal generate a cut for the coffee company. Yep, it sounds like a good business deal for sure.

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.
