McDonald’s has announced they’re going to offer free wireless internet access in 12,000 of its UK restaurants.

And of course they’re right. But when Starbucks/T-Mobile are selling an hour of internet access for £5 an hour (plus the cost of a mediocre cup of coffee), the prospect of free WiFi and a chocolate milkshake becomes too good an offer to pass up. As I said, I’m lovin’ it.
