What are you crazy? Eveyone knows keyboard advertising is
the next hottest thing. They've already beta-tested keyboards
with a "battery" key in several different markets. Here's
a stock tip for you: Buy KeyboardWeenies.com stock, they
trade on the DAX.
You press the key on the keyboard and 45 minutes later it shows up at
your door with no other interaction from the user. They are currently
in talks with the Cadillac people on putting a Juicolene button
on your Caddy. You press the button and foul smelling gremlins
sneak out and put gas in your car without you even knowing about it.
They first started out just doing it automagically by tying into
the fuel gauge, but then research indicated that like rats and
monkey, people feel much more satisfaction when there's a button
they can push.
The only drawback to their business model was that the "Chocolate"
key on the kiosk they put in the South Coast shopping Plaza for testing
ended up breaking after only 3 hours.
