Default Japanese Vending Machines Double Up as Free WiFi Hotspots

You have got to love the ingenuity behind this latest marketing idea from Japan, by a company named Asahi Soft-drinks. They've designed a new drink vending machine, which comes with a low-power (small coverage area) WiFi hotspot that's completely free to anyone standing close to the machine (you don't have to buy anything from the machine). So while your phone, tablet, or notebook is juicing up on some free bits and bytes, you can juice up on the drinks that machine offers, which includes juices, sodas, shakes, and coffees. You'll obviously have to pay for those.
