Also, McDonald's is fast food...I'm assuming the WiFi is motly for smartphones since they really can't expect anyone to spend more than a couple of minutes (it wouldn't help reach daily sales otherwise).

In Japan, McDonalds is the number one place for high school kids to do their homework, it seems. They spend hours there.

People with laptops is still more the domain of Starbucks, though you do see them at McDonalds too.
