Google Offers and Boingo are partnering to bring New York City straphangers free Wi-Fi at a handful of subway stations on the West side. Commuters will be able to browse Facebook on their bare, sweaty laps while waiting for trains, and those seeking MacBook Airs or whatever else, will have the singular opportunity to swipe these gadgets from slick, clammy thighs. Lucky stations are the 8th Avenue-14th Street A/C/E/L station, the West 23rd Street C/E station, the 7th Avenue-West 14th Street station, and the 6th Avenue-West 14th Street F/M/L (ha!) station.

Okay, okay. I shouldn’t make wild assumptions about the good people of the West 14th Street and West 23rd Street stations. After all, San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) has had free Wi-Fi in stations and train cars for years. In any event, the New York offer ends September 7th, so get your browsing in while you can! (Photo: Heath Brandon/Flickr)
