internetnews.com, "Marriott Touts Free Broadband:" "The hospitality industry, which has taken a drubbing over the last year, is looking for ways to fill rooms. High-speed Internet access is increasingly seen as a must-have amenity, especially for business travelers."
Reuters, "Marriott Giving Free Web, Though Not at Top Hotels:" "The world's largest hotelier said a fast Web connection had become a deciding factor for many business travelers looking for a place to stay."
Meanwhile, I'm here on dial-up at my in-laws' for the weekend. Word to the wise: unless the air travel industry undergoes radical efficiency improvements in the near future, do not, repeat not, endeavor to fly from Orange County, CA to San Jose, CA, on a flight departing between 7:00 and 10:00 a.m. on a weekday (and if you try to do it on a Friday, you'd be better off walking). Trust me on this one.
