The Wigo Vicious Cycle

I was in Rockwell today to watch the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. Before heading to the cinemas, we decided to have dinner at Wild Ginger.

While waiting for the food, I pulled out my iPod Touch and saw that there’s free internet access inside the mall courtesy of Wigo. So under “settings”, I added the Wigo signal to my device and it got connected after a second or two. Not bad.

Now when I launched my browser, it opened to the Wigo log in page, where you can enter your username and password or sign up for a free account. Having no account yet, I clicked on that “sign up” link and entered all the details in the page’s fields. Here’s the rub – after signing up, you will have to click on an activation URL that they send to the email address you provided. How am I supposed to do that if I don’t have internet access in the first place?

Hmmmm. Seems like the page needs to be reevaluated by a usability person.
