Video: Day One in Brisbane

Now you can see how the deluxe room in the Brisbane Marriott looks like. Later, I headed towards the Queen Street Mall, the most popular mall in the city, in my quest to find free wireless Internet access. As the visitor center people told me, there were free wireless hotspots at every Starbucks and McDonalds. What they didn’t tell me was that it was not consistently available at every branch. I know because I walked everywhere and checked. To get serious bandwidth for uploading my media, I had to pay for a wired connection back at the Marriott. I hate paying so much, but it’s just that important to me.

  1. Lucian: Actually that’s a good suggestion! If I don’t know where to go, I could just tail someone and end up somewhere new. I won’t get lost as long as I have my map with me ­čśŤ

    Sacrelicious: Can’t locate an Apple Store in Australia. Maybe there are none.

  2. i am not sure how this is going to work out. starbucks here have wireless internet that technically speaking, you have to pay for. however, they also have “trial cards” that you can just ask for, and it opens up an hour free of wi fi. most managers i have asked (heh) gives me about 2 at a go, so that’s 2 trial cards to get.

  3. iWant: How come no sarcasm today? :p

    Panda: OK good to know. Not all Starbucks have wifi routers though, so have to ask first. If you’re carrying a big laptop, then it’s a pain. Apple needs to make smaller ones, just like Sony. I’m not talking about the tiny UX, but the 11″ TX series.
