retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that McDonald's plans to start installing Apple iPads in select restaurants, believing that the availability of such technology will make it relevant to the next generation of shoppers.

The iPads, which are affixed to the tables, will allow consumers to play games, surf the web or check email while consuming their burgers and fries.
KC's View:
Hard to imagine that iPads are more attractive to kids than french fries, but I do think that this kind of technology helps to improve McDonald's image as being hip.

I just wonder how tough it will be to keep wiping the grease of the iPad screens.
