Haha, I think this is a good idea though I think they will just move on to McDonalds :P
If they are continuously buying coffee while camping then that can be a problem.
Makes absolutely perfect sense to me for Starbucks to close the AC outlets.Thinking of it's customers that would like to sit and enjoy whatever fresh brew & whatever for a spell or decide to go elsewhere all-together.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Yea you knew this was bound to happen.
Some Laptops have a wicked-long battery life, and I have three batteries for mine in the case. (the original 3 cell, and two 6 cell batteries) So who needs a plug?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Besides closing their AC outlets also saves them money on electricity...
Aww how am i suppose to stay connected with HH now :( lol
that only better be in new York.
Good! Its bad enough that we have all those kids who park themselves there just to do their homework! heres somthing we can teach the kids...IT'S CALLED HOMEWORK FOR A REASON!
When I was homeless, I often frequented coffee shops. Although I had a long life netbook, the abiliity to recharge the netbook at a coffee shop was helpful. The shelters were not always ideal for charging laptops. In fact, my netbook was stolen once while recharging in a chapel annex to the shelter, but police recovered it. Some homeless people had to charge their cellphones as well. I usually chose coffee shops that provided free wifi and free refills. In the end, Panera proved to be the best alternative as other coffee shops eliminated free coffee refills. The library was the most common destination. However, not every library has suitable hours. Given the early release times from shelters, a coffee shop would open up before the library. There are also days when the library is closed.
protip: buy more chairs
Just use a PSP or Iphone, that way you can still take advantage of it, but not look like you are, and you can buy attachments now to let you charge things like these as you walk, perfect solution.
LOL @ the image of homeless people with netbooks and cellphones.
it's amazing the cost of "free" services *cough* *android* *cough*
the key to a successful food/bev business is customer flow. stagnation is a true killer.

Imagine if they let people hang out in the movie theatre all afternoon, and bring their laptops and cameras just by purchasing one set of nachos:P
Starbuck's should hire an old chinese grandma to run up to wifi campers and yell "You be here four hour, you go now!!!!, I check your cup, is empty, you buy more or you go home!!!" That'll take care of the problem.
