cyberburger joint

A cyberburger joint is a fast-food restaurant that provides Internet access at a computer to its customers. The term was used in a New York Times story by Michel Marriott on July 30, 1998, in describing what is thought to be the first fast-food chain to bring the cybercafe idea to a more general audience. At its restaurant on the corner of Johns and Broadway in the financial district in lower Manhattan, Burger King added 20 computers to its dining space. Customers who made a minimum purchase of $4.99 (it didn't have to include a hamburger) or $3.29 for breakfast could surf the Web for 20 minutes. Customers at the store called it "a brilliant idea."

By 2001, the news story of a new cyber environment had worn a bit thin partly because many people in almost any kind of environment were carrying their own portable connection to cyberspace with them in some kind of handheld device.
