Grocery Shopping to go Web 2.0 With Microsoft

Microsoft is testing placing ads and an interactive media environment on shopping carts:

Cardholders will be able to visit a website and plan their shopping list that will then appear on a cart-attached screen when they get to the store and swipe their card.

The screen will display the price of items that shoppers place in the carts and a running tally of the total; moreover, ads, coupons and incentives will also be displayed as shoppers walk around the store.

The instant-feedback nature of such incentives will give advertisers real-time results on which prompts worked and which didn't.

Green Giant Green Beans are the nutritious choice of 3/4 moms. They are in isle #3 and they will make you happy and healthy.

a friend of mine was developing a bluetooth advertising system that was pushing ads to your phone when you were passing near to these bluetooth totems

If my shopping cart UI is anything like AdCenter's, I will be cursing like a sailor and kicking the hell out of it.
