If everyone in the world were suddenly like you, what industries would explode and which would flop?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

If everyone in the world were suddenly like you, what industries would explode and which would flop?
Ok, so here’s a fun question I like to ask sometimes. Let’s say that all of a sudden everyone in the world was like you. I mean, has your exact likes and dislikes: particularly spending habits and pastimes.
What industries would explode with profit and what industries would just go completely bust? Also, go inbetween. What industries might increase a bit and which would decrease?

For me, this is how it is.

Industries that would explode:
1. Fast food. You think a McDonalds every mile or so is enough? This industry would explode like none other if everyone was like me. Fast food corporations would have to redefine their logistics in order to keep up with the demand. In addition to that, significantly more restaurants would have to be built in order to keep up with the long lines. I’m talking about just about one of each restaurant within each mile or 2 radius. And you know how many restaurants there are of each.

2. Internet. Everyone would have a high speed internet connection at home. When you use your smart phone to scan for Wifi signals, you’ll be picking up networks constantly.

3. Android. Everyone would have Android in their lives. Some would choose i-phone. But most would go with Android. Just having a smartphone.

4. Adults only entertainment. Not going into this one, as if it’s not exploded already! Particularly internet based and maybe specialty bars and clubs catering to this.

5. Fridays and Saturday nights. Everyone would take advantage of their time off and go out!

Industries that would flop:

1. Sports. I have absolutely no interest in them. Sports on TV, sports clothing, and merchandise.

Industries that would increase:
1. Electronics stores. They already make a lotta money but people would be in them buying computers and accessories.
2. Restaurants. Particularly, sit down restaurants. People will eat out more and this would increase the number of restaurants there are. As if there aren’t enough.

Industries that would decrease:
1. Grocery stores. Everyone would eat out a lot more so there would be much less need for grocery stores. Wal-Mart supercenter would cease to exist, and regular sized grocery stores would decrease to probably the size of a large convenient store (Such as Flying J or Pilot).

So, these are just things I can think of right off. I’m sure there are more for me in each category. So, I want to know what it would be like if everyone were like you!

Don’t you just hate the aural abuse of someone smacking on their food in your ear while talking on the phone?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

My family does that to me all the time, & then they get offended when I tell them that they’re being rude. That really hurts my ears.
I specifically mean AURAL abuse-abuse to the ears.

Yes this can be very unpleasant and I’m surprised that your family does not realize how rude this is. I would suggest that if you cannot avoid taking their calls that you try to move the phone away from your ear as much as possible to lessen the discomfort.

I must compliment you on being the one in your family to practice telephone etiquette.

Fast Food Restaurants Are Going Mobile

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

What if you could order a meal from your favorite fast food joint with your cell phone? Then all you would have to do is go pick it up and enjoy it. Well, that is exactly what is on the horizon for cell phone users as fast food restaurants are going mobile with SMS technology.

A company in the UK has come up with a way to utilize the global texting network. Businesses, like fast food restaurants, place the small device, called an SMS printer, in the kitchen. The unit receives messages as a text message and prints it out. The kitchen staff treats it as an order and fills it as they would any order. All the customer has to do is pick it up.

The SMS printer is a standalone device that is not dependent on the Internet and does not require a hard phone line in order to operate. Therefore it is completely and totally portable. It is also small enough to be placed anywhere that is out of the way, yet accessible to the staff. Kitchens in fast food settings can use these types of printers to convey messages to kitchen staff correctly.

The printers use a thermal standard receipt paper sort of like that used by some fax machines. They also use a standard SIM card like all cell phones. This is how the printer picks up the SMS text message and prints it for viewing. The SIM cards can be bought almost anywhere and will can be either a contract or PAYG (pay as you go) type card. This choice is totally yours, in either case.

Here is how this idea works. A customer goes online and places an order. Before the order is completed, it can be edited or changed in any way. Payment is also done online and the order is placed. Your order is now sent through the SMS network to the kitchen. The kitchen sees your order exactly as you entered it, so mistakes with the orders are not a problem.

Since the whole process is done electronically, there are no interactions to worry about, misunderstandings or forgotten details. It all comes through in hard copy print to the kitchen personnel. Customers no longer have to pick up a phone or wait in a line at their favorite fast food or takeaway restaurant.

Customers can even control when the order is placed with the push of a button and with the exception of the order that prints in the kitchen, is entirely paperless. There is no call to make, handwriting to decipher or line to wait in.

Because the orders are placed on the Internet, they may be placed from any computer whether that is a desktop PC, a laptop or a cell phone with Internet capabilities and access. Not only is this a quicker, more precise order process, but adds a new dimension to fast food as we know it now.

So now the Internet has a new use for everyday life. Fast food has gone mobile in one maneuver.
