In that case, I'm going to submit and idea for a commerce application that does the following:

A) Knows who you are, and exactly what you like
B) Buys it for you, with your credit card
C) Sends it to your house, or to the house of the person the program bought a gift for

Bonuses: Completely hands free commerce. The idea is to make things as simple as possible for the consumer to purchase things

Businesses will love this shit.

IP Commerce is enabling the next generation of commerce applications, known as POS 2.0, which brings online consumer experiences into offline commerce environments via tablet, mobile and other cloud-connected devices.


POS, of course, is widely used as an acronym, and has been since at least the 1980s. So this platform they're excited about is being read by a lot of people as "piece of shit, 2.0".
