Forward to the Past

Once again, our new “technology” brings us back to where we started a few decades ago.


I walk into Starbucks.

And there is a long line.

So I sit in my usual spot and start my Internet work.

I order my coffee and bagel on my phone.

Five minutes into work I walk over and pick up my order.

I have turned a stand-and-order restaurant into a sit-and-order restaurant.

Hmmm, all this technology takes me back to the 1960s or something. We sat in restaurants, ordered, and did something until the food arrived.

Stand-and-order is okay sometimes. Sit-and-order is okay some times.

Well, there is some value in choice, I guess.

Still, it seems this mobile app order was intended to do something new or whatever.
