    I hope they have GPS on them so they can direct me to the products I am looking for when my wife sends me to get the groceries. I never can find everything she wants.:laugh:

    Alright!!! :thumbs:


    Gillette had GPS tracking in a microchip sold at Wallmart. It followed people home whom lived within a few miles of the store and took pics of them while in the privacy of their homes, no joke.

    A GPS would be wonderful in Home Depot. But this takes all the fun out of anthropomorphic cartoons....

    This is a great idea for those who want to use it. As long as the govt. doesn't make this mandatory I'm all for it.

    Well, if they'd just invent one that would figure my "healthy" total calories/carbs/protein/fats for the day, plan my menus, put the appropriate food in the cart, check it out, PAY FOR IT, then carry it home and cook it for me, it might be okay.

    Otherwise, all I can say is SHUT UP, CART!:smilewinkgrin:

    and before anyone asks... If I don't do that, when I get home, I hear:

    "What the sam hill did you let your father buy that for??!?!?!?!?"

    I can't win around here, at times. :rolleyes: :D :laugh:

    From the article: "It will read each product's individual code to give customers information about calories, nutrition, ethical sourcing and the environment."

    Does this mean these barcodes and 'talking carts' are going to be used to smear certain companies that do business in the wrong way, perhaps in the wrong coutries, and use containers that biodegrade 5% slower? I see trouble here.

    And are stores going to sell the info about what particular consumers buy to insurance companies, who intend to jack the rates of those who buy too much ice cream or potato chips?

    That's a thought but think about it this way. It could be worse. What if, after taking a shower, you shaved while remaining unclothed? They could sell your picture to porn websites!

    Scary stuff...
