The essential guide to IT transformation

Hewlett-Packard has stumped up $5 million worth of hardware to kit out a new cybercafe in central London. The IT giant has joined forces with Stelios Haji-Ioannou, CEO of the cut-price airline easyJet, to create what is already being hyped as the world's biggest cybercafe. Opened today by Haji-Ioannou, easyEverything is sited opposite London's Victoria Station and is the first of many supercybercafes planned by the entrepreneur. And since the Net ever closes for business, neither will easyEverything. It will be open 24/7 bringing a new meaning to the corner shop maxim "open-all-hours." At just £1 an hour, easyEverything is certainly affordable although technical assistance -- which is usually provided free of charge in other cybercafes -- costs extra. Whether they make a decent mocha is another matter. ®
