Microsoft sponsoring free WiFi in San Francisco and New York as part of Windows 8 marketing campaignIf you’re visiting New York or San Francisco, or if you’re a resident, well be prepared to receive free WiFi! Yup that’s right, it seems that in an attempt to generate some buzz for the upcoming launch of their Windows 8 platform, Microsoft has sponsored Boingo’s WiFi, so from now until the end of the holidays, visitors and residents to New York and/or San Francisco can expect to access WiFi hotspots. For San Francisco, Microsoft has rolled out WiFi coverage to certain popular areas, such as Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf, but for New York, Microsoft has gone all out and starting 1st November, 200 locations in Manhattan and six subway stations will be offering up free WiFi coverage. Granted it’s a publicity stunt but hey, free WiFi, right?
