eta, how many people lost jobs? Same reason I don't use a ATM if I can avoid it.

Exactly, just by entering a restaurant and touching the door knob you are already contaminated. In any event, I certainly do not invite marketing surveillance and would prefer not to while dining, but I do enjoy the interactive self-serve menu and would hope they would provide a pointer wand or something similar to select items, and provide a way to turn it off. Also, I can also get up and wash my hands.

In the sushi restaurant we frequent, they are extremely busy and still have lots of service staff providing all sorts of services.

Marketing surveillance is just the first level of surveillance likely taking place here.

I'd like to see swab tests on these, and regular menus and see which comes out the cleanliest, but regular menus don't listen to your conversations or know your whereabouts.
A restaurant is someplace most people expect a certain degree of privacy.
This could really suck all the fun out a romantic dinner, and forget about a private business meeting with those on your table.
Apparently certain rather obsessive elements just can't sleep at night knowing someone somewhere may have whispered something without their knowledge.

Marketing surveillance has existed forever in other forms.

what restaurant chain has a hostess that shows you your table? blink.gif

the burger king near me has been closed for a month due to hygiene issues... when they opened again they still had the same employees. blonde.gif

lol.gif You have to be a certain age, or retarded for that meals on wheels deal don't you? chuckle.gif
In all fairness, BK rules for burger type fast food. way better than Mickey Dee's, Wendy's or any of the other burger chains. White Castle is the only thing close, but sliders are a totally different experience than BK.
I have to say though, damn, I miss Taco Bell.

not here in germany. they offer it to everyone. if you're willing to pay. i think it was €8 - 10 per meal or something. cheap if you consider how much energy and overcoming it costs to cook something. lmao.gif

edit: price list (in german) - http://www.landhaus-kueche.de/landhausku...4_2015.pdf <- traditional german food. chuckle.gif
