    Just wondering if these "free" WiFi hotspots are really free (meaning unsecured) or do some require a key from the establishment?

    How about the airport? That's one location that really needs free WiFi.

    Add: China Bank Starbucks along Villar St. (near Citibank)

    Regarding the battery life: I have a fairly new Centrino Duo notebook (a Toshiba M500) and the battery life is still disappointingly short (less than 2 hours). Not so surprising when you've got those power-hungry dual cores, but the point is still valid that battery life is still too short.

    If I'm not mistaken, the NAIA Centennial Terminal is covered by Airbourne Access, which is not free btw. But there was a promo for new PLDT DSL & SmartBro subscribers that will give 6 months unlimited access to its wifi network around the country.

    That's a bit disappointing. I was hoping WiFi at the airport will be unsecured. The reason being by the time I do make another visit there, I'll be using my kid's old Nintendo DS to surf the web via Opera web browser cartridge. I don't think it can handle secured WiFi hotspots, though.

    JAP, maybe by the time you come here, the new terminal will already be operational. And I hope that it would provide free wifi already.

    If it's done sometime next year, then cool. It's merely a convenience. But, free WiFi would bring NAIA in line with other international airports.

    It's also great that many parts of Metro Manila are already offering free WiFi.

    Orly: Core Duos are actually very energy efficient that a typical 12" can last for 7-8hrs continuous (8 or 9-cell battery pack). 4-cell (the cheapest) can last for 3-4hrs.

    either something is terribly wrong with your battery or with the board's power management system.
