Re: The app store model is more brilliant than it first appears
I wrote about them doing this in New York a while back; it's an ingenious idea that will hopefully continue to catch on especially in metro areas.

Walmart is actually trying out a service that would allow people to bring the groceries into your home and put them in your fridge when you're not there. That is taking convenience to a whole new level that I'm not sure many people are asking for.

@Jpe. S:

I have similar feeling. I noticed many elderly people playing games on their phones. Some times i notice that those folks make use of smart phone features way more than i do. I am not a phone buff though.

@Joe.S:

True, that's so common these days. I believe it kind of became a norm with these payment plans for devices. Some times providers come up with BOGO deals and couple with 2 kids buy 2 devices on paymnet plan, BINGO they get 4 phones in total. All latest and greatest models. At that time they don't care if 8 year old uses or whoever. I personally saw such cases.

@Joe. S:

What a coincidence. I saw a pay phone last week randomly and was exactly thinking the same. I believe that we do have several out there still. I am sure they will come handy at times.

@elizabethv: My favorites are the elders trying out newer video games.

The GTA V one is great.

Re: The app store model is more brilliant than it first appears
@elizabethv: I've heard of this but have not seen it myself in the wild.

I saw a payphone just a few days ago, but it was just a regular ol' payphone. It's good that there are still some around in case of an emergency. People do forget/lose/get robbed of their phones, people do run out of battery power, and there are still dead zones. A few people don't even have phones, period.

@elizabethv: I've thought about doing Prime Now. I forget why I decided against it but it might be worth looking at again.

I briefly tried out Google Express. Very limited, though, and I got tired of the subscription fees.

Re: The app store model is more brilliant than it first appears
@Joe - while I hate to be a part of the transition that makes phyiscal grocery stores obsolete, doing my grocery shopping via Prime Now has changed my life. I no longer have to drag 3 kids under the age of 6 into a grocery store and listen to all of their new demands for surviving their cold hard lives. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
