Free National Wi-Fi From Google?

Google has filed patents that indicate they want to get into the free Wi-Fi market in a big way. From Business 2.0 Magazine: "More evidence has emerged that Google is getting ready to blanket the U.S. with free Wi-Fi, as Business 2.0 senior writer Om Malik reported last year. Now, the company has filed for three patents related to offering wireless Internet access. Search Engine Roundtable points out that the patents all have to do with serving up advertising through a wireless Internet connection maintained by a third party, whose brand Google would include in the presentation of those ads."
