so what, people have a mcdonalds membership card or you use facial recognition or what

you can fuck off if you think i'm becoming a card carrying mcdonalds member

you, you personally can fuck off

not really allowed to say, but it's passive; you wouldn't need to sign up for it, just opt in at the point of sale

ux flow on a touchscreen terminal is just

select order items -> [x] remember my order for next time -> done

or maybe add to my favorite orders or whatever. the specifics are up to them, we just provide an api for associating arbitrary data with an individual interacting with the terminal

the real money is probably in targeted advertising based on your behaviour over the network of terminals, but there are some practical and legal problems there so who knows if that will ever happen.

I love self checkout...
But mostly because I rather not have awkward conversations with strangers

"Hello, how are you?"
Do you really care...

that's got to be some kind of facial recognition then, that's creepy as hell and must be a legal nightmare

or some kind of pin, but you'd no doubt have replication all over the place then

well i neither confirm nor deny that it's facial recognition

but i dunno, the data already exists in the sense that a cashier can remember you and your order

it's just that accessing it is ineffecient and not centralized

clearly we just need a secret data sharing deal with the intelligence community so they can shield us from the legal hassle

and then we'll all know about your girly latte habit

no i want no advertising, i want to pay for a burger when i'm getting a burger. i don't want more efficient advertising doing it's level best to pry my money out of my wallet either, it exists to take as much of my money as possible without bankrupting me

i also don't trust anybody not to save and use my data and just not offer me the pre-emptive options of burgers

c'mon pasty you're not dumb, don't throw yourself in with the common man

most things that people who are even a little bit smarter than average contrive to do are designed to take money from people who are a little bit dumber than they are

you'd better get with the program guy
