Corporate coffee chains often strike Wi-Fi deals with a particular provider, but if you want genuinely free Wi-Fi, you're going to need to stick to independent cafés. (Of course, you'll also get better coffee.) Laptopfriendlycafes.com simplifies that task by listing cafés complete with details of whether they supply free Wi-Fi, power outlets and what their 3G reception is like (though the latter isn't broken down by provider). The listings are currently limited to just four major cities — Sydney, Melbourne, London and New York — and they're not yet comprehensive, but given time and some user support this could turn into a really useful resource for workers on the go.
