Yesterday evening, Om Malik broke the news that Google is planning on rolling out free wi-fi service in San Francisco. The network will have speeds up to 300 kbps with a free VPN client. Om had previously written about this as a possibility in an article for Business 2.0 and now it has been confirmed.
Please note, the above photo of Ryan and his broken PowerBook have absolutely nothing at all to do with this news. I just really like it and have been looking for an excuse to use it with a post. Maybe free Wi-Fi will make Ryan forget about his PowerBook woes.
