Sure enough, instead of displaying our usual - "home page", we saw a big screen full of McDonald's logos, ads, and buttons leading to various options oriented toward lovers of their services.

An intimidating new web page was displayed, which was dominated by a list of Internet Service Providers, each associated with terms and conditions and with a demand for a username and password. None of that looked like much fun.

To the right of all of that busy text, we saw a large, red, rectangular patch with a McDonald's logo and the text - "Wi-Fi Here".
