A great idea but I wonder how the customer pays for it? It says the Miami Fontainebleau is to put 1,400 iMacs into each room. <br><br>What they should do:<br> this is free internet, iTunes with good speakers and software for music waking you up as well as interactive website which shows you where and what is happening in the hotel. <br><br>What they will do:<br>charge you 28 dollars extra a day for the password to the iMac account.<br><br>I've always thought this was a bad idea buying so many computers because they age so quickly but nowadays an iMac will still be usable five years later and not be long in the tooth. For a hotel five years is a long time. This sure beats out the "Motel 6 FREE WIRELESS" but really that is all most of us need because we all are carrying laptops.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Great news!<br><br>Geez, thought Steve and I were lucky having an iMac in our suite in Kauai. Looks like many other accommodations will go that way. It's a great touch for someone in the hospitality business to show they care about the client's total experience. <br><br>

So, with 600 rooms, that's 840,000 iMacs. I hope the foundations are strong - not to mention the power supply...<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

Well one thing for sure with that many computers in the room, I hope they have a helluva big air conditioner for the guest.....<br><br>course they could pass out hot dog weiners and smores !! <br><br>how dark do you like your buns toasted ? <br><br>David (OFI)
It said something about being able to wipe/re-image 1000 Macs remotely in 5 minutes. That oughta do it! Keep the machines fresh and clean* for each new guest.<br><br>* But I wouldn't want to look at them with a UV lamp!<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
[color:blue]I just hope they keep them updated and in good repair. Nothing worse than finding a neglected Mac.</font color=blue><br><br>Right Michael;<br>I sure hope they have a Genius Bar next to the Pool Bar - like you mention , nothing pisses people off more then a dead Mac --> sorta reminds of Comp-USA days. Could be a menu to disaster for Apple<br><br>IMO <br><br>
