IDG Contributor Network: Coca-Cola piloting free Wi-Fi at vending machines

Here’s a clever value-adding innovation: free Wi-Fi access at beverage vending machines.

Yahoo will ring in the new year by killing its website directory

Yahoo, which got its start as a digital phone book of websites, is closing that book.

Yahoo will shut down its Directory service on Dec. 31, the company said Friday in a blog post.

As it stands now Directory sites are organized by topics like health, sports and entertainment, though a search bar has been incorporated into the page.
