This weekend I actually was able to watch more TV than I have in a month. The first commercial I saw was for Comfort Inn… since they are one of our clients, I watched it instead of changing the channels.
It was about a man who was sore and tired from driving all day on ‘vacation’. He was finally able to relax and unwind the night he was at a Comfort Inn. The part that I liked was when they mentioned all the features of their hotel. If any of you have read any of my previous blogs, you will know that I have said that Wi-Fi in today’s generation is becoming synonymous with having AC in a hotel or restaurant. It becoming part of the norm. Well, in this commercial, the first thing that was mentioned was Free Wi-Fi! Of course AFTER that was mentioned they also mentioned; cozy pool, relaxing bed and free breakfast…
Many hotels out there still do charge for Wi-Fi… this is quickly changing. Usually hotels are located in bunches – so in a span of 2-3 kilometers there will be maybe 5 or 6 hotels… so if one has Free Wi-Fi the others quickly follow suit. This being said, when you are looking for a hotel, be sure to check if they offer Free Wi-Fi!
As many of you know, last year we were strong supporters of MP Gerry Martinuik’s Bill 202, Private Member’s Bill an Act to Protect Our Children.
This Bill was being introduced in hopes that it would become law for all public libraries and public schools to have Internet filters in place. This bill, amongst many others died in March. Tomorrow on May 12, 2010, this bill is being re-introduced. Pure Pages still strongly supports this issue and we wish MP Martinuik all our best and provide him with full support on this topic.
We will post more information on this Bill as time passes.
