Mobile: Why Are These Folks Standing Outside Of A Starbucks After Sandy?

Pretty telling photo here from NY.  These folks are all standing outside Starbucks.  A closed Starbucks.

Why?  Not because there’s a new drink that everyone has to have the way Apple fans has to have their fix of the latest and greatest from Cupertino.  Not because Starbucks has a new coffee flavor.

Free WiFi.  Rather, working WiFi.  After Sandy plowed into the Northeast, about 8 million customers were left without power.  By the looks of videos and photos online, NY took a big chunk of the pounding and many were left without power.

How Starbucks still has power and working Internet connection is something that I like to know.
