I haven't seen it here yet, but that's been to my surprise. I've seen wi-fi squatters are Panera, Starbucks & my fav local independent coffee shop - but not in numbers that prevent actual customers from finding seats. I use wi-fi at Panera and my fav coffee shop, but only when I buy an actual breakfast or lunch, not during prime time, and then for 45-60 minutes at most. If I was done eating and people were looking for a table, I would definitely leave to make space, wi-fi or not.
It is a Catch-22 though. I chose places based on free wi-fi, so it definitely brings them actual business in my case.
Same with the observation above about people reading magazines at Barnes & Noble with no intention to buy. I've seen college kids sitting down with books and taken extensive notes, not sure if they buy the books but I assume not (why would they be taking notes?). And even worse IMO, people who gather up a pile of books and/or mags, flip through them, and then leave without even putting them back.
