Google has stepped forward to offer some holiday relief for air travelers in 47 airports across the United States, including Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport: free Wi-Fi running until January 15, 2010. Are the computerati cheering? Well, here’s PC World’s take: “airports and retail stores should already be providing free Wi-Fi service if they want your business.” Happy holidays!

Other airports selected: Austin, Baltimore, Billings, Boston, Bozeman, Buffalo, Burbank (Calif.), Central Wisconsin, Charlotte, Des Moines, El Paso, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Greensboro, Houston (HOU), Houston Bush (IAH), Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kalamazoo, Louisville, Madison, Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee, Monterey, Nashville, Newport News, Norfolk, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Orlando, Panama City, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle, South Bend, Spokane, St. Louis, State College, Toledo, Traverse City and West Palm Beach.
