Starbucks Chases ‘Laptop Hobos’

The blog reports that some Starbucks stores in New York have started covering up electrical outlets. The company hasn't commented on the rumors, which were reported in an unofficial Starbucks blog. Other places like "McDonald's" limit the amount of time customers can spend online/KREM. More here. (AP file photo)
