Apple Store on George Street, Sydney

Sydney, Australia. One of the very few things I found irksome about Australia was the internet situation -- it's expensive and you have to watch how much you use. If you go over your monthly bandwidth limit your ISP will charge you extra fees or drop you down to dial-up speeds. I had to make a trip to the Apple Store nearly every Sunday to piggyback their free WiFi, since it was the only place in New South Wales offering that service. The idea that coffeeshops, cafes, or bookstores might offer free WiFi access to their customers is a strange and risible one to the Aussie mind.
