I was looking at a couple local sites today while trying to find a place to trade my cellular phone for a different model.. and I came across this advertisement. I almost didn’t take a second look until I saw the little interac machine at the bottom. Interesting. Check it out.
Now, I’m not complaining, I’m all about making things easier, but when was the last time you actually WENT out for pizza, instead of ordered in? You probably can’t think of too many times can you. This ad right here, is almost a foreshadowing of what’s to come – even if you don’t have a credit card, you must have a bank account so we’ll deliver our products and let you pay right then and there. Great use of technology, local mesh networks or maybe gsm who knows, COD delivery of your favourite electronics, all without ever having to see anyone or go anywhere.
Anyway, that’s my little ramble for today, I’m not saying it’s bad, but I’m also not saying it’s good – in 20 years will nobody leave their homes in fear of “the axis of evil” or whatever they want us to be afraid of today?
