AT&T Officially Offers Free WiFi for iPhone Users
iPhone users can officially grab free WiFi at thousands of AT&T hotspots around the United States. In order to get the WiFi access you’ll need to enter in your phone number once you’re connected to a hotspot, and then AT&T will send you a link via text message containing the URL needed to start using the service. That URL will be valid for up to 24-hours, which is kind of AT&T’s way of preventing people from trying to share the free WiFi access.

I’ve always been impressed with the variety of ways Remember the Milk has created to manage tasks, but it’s astonishing that they never developed a Vista Sidebar Gadget.
