The rich get richer: Free iPhone/iPod Touch hotspots

jiwire As if specific web sites for iPhone and iPod Touch users weren’t enough, JiWire has announced free Wi-Fi access from over 100,000 locations available only to the aforementioned iPhone and iPod Touch users.

In order to glom on to such a network, we’ll be required to first view “a JiWire-supplied advertisement” from companies like HBO and Charles Schwab.

When the two devices came out, it was pretty apparent that there’d be optimized versions of web sites but I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t see special wireless network access privileges coming, aside from the whole Starbucks thing. Very nice.
