How to Get Free Wifi

I'm writing this from outside a Best Western in San Mateo, since I'm
waiting for a flight to land at SFO that has been delayed a bit. I
wanted to have Internet connection, and I just got to 90% of my data
cap this morning so I turned off data on my iPhone 4. I parked outside
the hotel, and the connection was unsecured. I connected but arrived
at a splash screen that required a password provided by the front
desk. I was too lazy to go out in the rain to talk to them. I texted
google (466453) to get the front desk number, called, got the
password, and voila! Not that impressive, but it was fun and easy to
use this combination to get what I needed.
