Starbucks bans XXX Wi-Fi

Coffee mega-chain Starbucks will ban X-rated websites on its free Wi-Fi networks following pressure from anti-porn groups.

The US java-slinger says it will add filters to prevent surfers from peeping at saucy content while using the free wireless internet offered in its cafés.

This comes after "food" chain McDonalds said it would impose a similar policy on its public networks as a result of anti-smut groups complaining that people could use Wi-Fi to view – and expose others in the vicinity to – raunchy entertainment. ®
