Here's what you need:
  I want someplace we can sit down that's quiet enough for a group
of 5 people to talk comfortably over a round of really strong Latte's.
Your m-commerce device goes out, puts a bid out onto the wire in the
local area, 2 Starbuck's respond, and a Deitrich's coffee responds that they
aren't that busy and further, they have a deal on Triple shot Blue
Mountain Lattes right around the corner and there's two couches open
in the corner that they'll save for you.

E-commerce can't get much more friendly that that.
