In Pictures: 10 ways tech is making fast food personal

Fast food restaurants want to use technology - theirs and yours - to create a highly intimate customer experience. Your personal device and the restaurant's own systems will exchange data, for your convenience and their profit. Fast food becomes not so much a destination, but a service that follows you from mealtime to mealtime.

Burger King Have it your way--at your house. Burger King started delivery service in some markets in 2011. Fast food companies have done delivery in many countries for a long time,but in the United States, burger and chicken delivery is new. In addition to figuring out how to stop fries from getting soggy (a job for "packaging engineers" with degrees in such things) fulfilling Web orders requires a call center and a different workflow. But Burger King thinks it's worth the trouble. With a $10 minimum and $2 delivery charge, average order value is higher. In the future, CIO Kelly Maddern plans to add features for cross-selling and upselling with recommendations that pop up on the website as customers click around.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
