Mitch also has an amusing post on the success of Dunn Brothers, a Twin Cities coffee shop chain that is apparently outselling Caribou and Starbucks. Doesn't surprise me; aside from the superior coffee, Dunn Brothers also offers free wi-fi connectivity, and this attracts a lot more traffic than the Starbucks T-Mobile pay access or the Caribou network, which is just unspeakably clumsy.
