T-Mobile is not happy about how Starbucks is handling the transition from T-Mobile to AT&T free Wi-Fi at the coffee chain and is suing. Per Gizmodo: "The gist is that Starbucks and AT&T are promoting free Wi-Fi in markets where T-Mobile still has the exclusive right to 'sell, market and promote its services' since the infrastructure transition to AT&T isn't complete. In fact, technically, the only two markets running Death Star-certified equipment are San Antonio and Bakersfield, California, meaning the rest of the stores are still on T-Mobile's network. So AT&T's making bank on T-Mobile's dime. [Gizmodo]
