Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

BT Openzone and Heineken are teaming up to offer drinkers in 100 UK pubs Wi-Fi access.

The partnership will then be extended to include another 200 bars and pubs by the end of 2012.

The two have also done a deal with mini-Independent newspaper i to put its content online as part of the "Heineken hub".

The Wi-Fi pub is of course a big improvement on the wireless coffee shop, but one issue remains. Many premises will not let you use a plug to recharge your laptop therefore limiting the working/drinking day to the length of time your battery lasts.

BT has added 200,000 sites to its 3-million strong UK network of Wi-Fi spots in the last three months. Access is free for BT Broadband customers. ®
