McDonald's to launch Nintendo WiFi hotspots

Nintendo and Wayport have teamed up to offer free WiFi hotspots for Nintendo DS gamers in McDonald's restaurants across the US. Nintendo will launch a complimentary WiFi service called Wi-Fi Connection. WiFi solutions provider Wayport plans to add 1,000 WiFi-enabled McDonald's by June to its existing 6,000 WiFi-enabled locations. McDonald's currently charges laptop users for access to its WiFi services, but the Nintendo arrangement will permit Nintendo DS users to play without a laptop or a fee. Together at last: fast food and video games.
