Great Satan of Grilled Meat Products, Burger King, is to branch out into the cybercafe business -- in one branch. The company yesterday said a new outlet, opening in Hartford, Connecticut, would provide 20 PCs for punters to surf the Web while sampling their Whoppers. Certain meals will come with certain amounts of online time, said the company. For instance, a Combo Meal will bundle 15 minutes of surfing -- over three times as long as it takes to eat the thing, but more than enough time to cover the keyboard in ketchup, grease and dead fries. As a wholesome, family-oriented company, BK said its machines will filter out adult material, and users will not be allowed to send or receive email. So clearly the company's 'anyway you want it' slogan won't apply to this side of its business. Like its burgers, BK's machines will contain no spam. And, if the quality of staff at London BK outlets is anything to go by, tech support won't be on the menu either. A BK spokesman said the company has no plans to provide Net access through its other branches, but it would evaluate the success of the Hartford trial. ®
