Lucky enough for those of you who don’t have a wireless device when you’re travelling, we’ve got Internet Kiosks which cost just short of a small city to use. At any rate though, they’re these little babies:
This one just happened to be in Southampton airport, and I wanted to take a minute and look at it.
- Dell machine advertising Samsung
- Windows 7 advertisement but the kiosk (as almost all do) runs some sort of its own OS and no where near resembles Windows 7
- A link to FREE websites on the side, which, when clicked on, brings up a payment screen?!
- A search engine that doesn’t return results (again a “FREE” perk of this kiosk)
OK, so maybe it’s me being critical again of technology (as it’s what I do every day) but lets not try to send too much of a misconstrued message to the public we want to captivate and utilise it more (i.e. those folks who don’t have laptops in tow and are our target market)…Hmm, maybe a rethink of our marketing strategy guys?
