I saw this on another forum and thought it was an interesting idea.



"Walk into Starbucks/McDonalds/etc, pull out your iPhone, tap your order onto the screen, and wait for the notification that your order is ready for pickup.

Apple has a patent pending for a new wireless system which allows consumers to place their order from a wireless device, such as your iPhone, and receive a notification on the device when the order is ready for pickup.

The system would be integrated with some sort of payment system as well, word on that isn't clear. Perhaps some sort of online wallet-type application to hold your billing info, perhaps directly into iTunes. No word yet on when this would be rolled out, but its an interesting future"

That does sound pretty kool, but I would be afraid of the thiefs.

That is a neat idea, but I despise all fast food resturants.

In Japan, you can do all sorts of things with your cellphones like this. It's a really convenient concept if you have places to take make use of it.

He is not banned, his avatar is a banned logo, hover your mouse over it. If you are banned thats it you got The Screen Door with the BIG KNOB........>

Nice one, he had me wondering the same thing about being banned.
Original idea
