Coffee shop calls you a cheapskate over the electromagnetic spectrum

Share

wifinames.jpgA Dutch coffee shop has come up with a clever ruse to try and drum up business from the freeloaders who nurse one drink all day in order to leach off of the free internet: they’ve started slagging off customers by using their WiFi network names as a passive aggressive outlet.

The CoffeeCompany have been changing their network name to things like “OrderAnotherCoffeeAlready”, and have even been promoting drinks and special offers and the like. For example, apparently another one of the SSIDs used was “TodaysSpecialExpresso1.60Euro”.

I think this is a great idea – I’ve already renamed my home network “IHateYouMrPostman”, so if I don’t receive any post ever again, I’ll know that I’ve been successful.
