Burger King's Internet Kiosks

from the success-story? dept

I remember back when Burger King announced they were going to place Internet kiosks in some stores, but now, apparently, they're in place, and people seem to like them. Not sure how big a fad this will turn into. Personally, I don't have much desire to eat and surf at the same time, but I'm told there are folks way more addicted to the internet than I.

    Internet access with your value meal? It seems like a cool idea, but I don't know how much the general public would like it. I mean, if I actually was there, I would actually be kind of embarrassed to "surf the web" while I ate my meal...

    Re: Hmm

    Does that depend on what sort of sites you're surfing?

    I don't know if I'd be embarrassed. I just don't really have the desire to surf and eat at the same time. I'm one of those internet folks who actually leaves my computer to eat.

    well, internet is becoming more and more mainstream, but it still just seems like a geeky thing to do while at burger king. Not that there's really anything wrong with being a geek, but i try to leave my geekiness at home :)
