Stylish new Internet café uses iMacs
Neighborhood Nerve Center highlights a stylish new Internet café in San Francisco (corner of Fulton and Divisadero), which utilizes 12 iMacs--connected via AirPort--as well as a variety of other multimedia tools and software, including iMovie, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, and Dreamweaver. Cost is only $2 for unlimited access. However, MacNN reader Mike Kauffmann had some comments after his visit:
I went to that "Neighborhood Nerve Center" on Divisidero in San Francisco last Monday (9/10) to see wahat it was like. It's a dump. There was trash on the floor and looked like a wild 15-year-old's bedroom. Thanks, but no thanks. The Red Roaster needs a "Mom" to clean up after these people. I'm surprised Apple would tout this place on their website. [updated]
