What would you have it do in those places? If you can identify an economically
viable requirement for those markets, you might be on to something. The video
store itself probably won't even see out the decade, so I doubt if anyone's going
to put much effort into ramping up that model. For the other two, the phone is
probably more efficient overall for taking orders and they might use a database
for reordering if they belong to a chain. Beyond that, you'd be looking to do
something pretty specialised. Where's the dough in a pizza shop?

Everywhere I look...:-)
