I’m sure a handful of you hooligans have been inside a Borders or Starbucks and have seen that “T-Mobile” wireless network lying low. Truth be told, the T-Mobile HotSpots around the country are great ways to connect to the Internet, but they’re also a little pricey for the casual user.
So this brings us to Microsoft Vista. Vista users who connect to a T-Mobile HotSpot can receive three months of free, unadulterated, steamy access. Everyone else however (XP, 2000, Linux, OS X), is getting the shaft – until now. Use the following user agent switching process in Firefox and within minutes, you’ll be surfing the Internet at no cost to you.
