The world has gotten wildly connected in the last years. Every new place we go, the first thing to ask for is the wireless password, and when we’re outside the protective field of one or another wifi network, 4G is there to make sure we never have to wonder about any little bit of trivia that should cross our minds. And yes, it’s a great new time that has given us, for example, the Arab Spring, but there are some downsides too. The expectation that work emails will be seen no matter when they’re sent, for example. Playing Words with Friends instead of paying attention to the real friends you’re actually sitting with, also.
Well, over at the Cupertino Inn, we tried to provide a bit of a safe haven for all of you. We thought that if our internet never worked properly, it would turn your nights with us there into a welcome vacation from connectivity. Sure, you might grumble to your coworkers in the morning, but secretly you would revel in the old-school freedom and thank us for our unwillingness to join the masses. Years of hate mail have convinced us otherwise.
And so, I’m pleased to announce that as of this week, the Cupertino Inn has joined the modern world. Our wireless network should be, from now on, as smooth as it is everywhere else. We apologize for all the many, many inconveniences.
