So Starbucks is soliciting ideas from its customer base with the promise that they’ll take action based on popular demand. Free wifi and customer loyalty programs appear to be the overwhelming leaders so far, although I didn’t dig far enough down into the running to see all the obligatory completely mental ones, like “Orbiting Laser Cannon Platforms” and “Monogrammed Foam” and “More Kenny G CDs.” But I’m sure they must be there.
I’m all for the free wifi. Not having ready access to T-Mobile hotspots is about the only thing I miss after having jumped ship on my cell phone plan. You can contribute your idea here.
