- Walmart is rolling out giant vending machines for online pickup orders
By Patrick Kulp - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
Walmart is on a quest to make its in-store pickup process free of human interaction.
The big-box store is rolling out a giant self-serve kiosk tower for online orders to more than a dozen locations. Customers simply arrange their shipment ahead of time, visit the store, and access their order via a barcode scanner on the side of the machine. Each package is preloaded by workers.
The massive orange towers stand 16 feet tall by 8 feet wide and deliver items through a conveyor belt inside the contraption. Walmart began testing the system last fall in an Arkansas store near its headquarters. Read more...More about Amazon, Walmart, Business, and Big Tech Companies
- Nobody asked for these vending machine things that two ex-Googlers want to replace bodegas
By Colin Daileda - Wednesday Sep 13, 2017
You ever watch a train-wreck of a commercial and wonder how on earth it got through all the people it had to get through to get on air?

On Wednesday, Fast Company published an article titled, "Two ex-Googlers want to make bodegas and mom-and-pop corner stores obsolete."
Stay with me now.
The idea these ex-Googlers proposed is, essentially, deploying lots of vending machines with items like cleaning supplies and chips, which will erode small businesses that provide a lot of basic needs and wants for their surrounding communities. Unlike classic bodegas and mom-and-pop corner stores, these machine box things will not make you an egg and cheese on a roll, and they will certainly not recognize you and talk with you about whatever the hell you talk about at 2 a.m. on a weekday when you've wandered in cuz you can't sleep and now you're hungry.
