Big interests in Internet Cafes

I am noticing a pattern with the amount of interest some companies are showing internet cafes. I metioned in a previous post about Google's recent development; but I also came across this article.

It states that Intel Corp. has teamed up with Internet content provider Tom Online Inc. to open a chain of Internet cafes that allow users to record and share songs over the Internet. So here is what I think might happen in the future:

  • It will be mandatory for computer/internet companies to market to Internet cafe customers.

  • Cafe will be sponsored by computer/internet companies. (free internet access, laptops, etc.)

  • Cafes will become more about technology than food, beverages, relaxation, and atmosphere.


But what do you guys think? What is the future holding for our cafes, coffeehouses, and tea rooms?
