    7-Eleven Tests Cashier-Free Shopping In 14 Stores

    https://news.slashdot.org/story/18/1...g-in-14-stores

    7-Eleven is testing cashier-less shopping systems, similar to Amazon's "Go" stores that use an array of cameras and machine-learning technology to determine what customers are buying. According to TechSpot, "customers can simply pick up select items, scan the barcode, pay through their phone, and leave; there is no need to wait in line or even speak to another human being." From the report:

    As previously stated, this is just a test right now. There's no guarantee that 7-Eleven will actually ditch its cashiers anytime soon; particularly not while it continues to serve age-restricted beverages and drugs. For now, this scan-and-go system is purely serving as an augmentation to its current way of handling customers. Furthermore, there's a catch: customers who want to use the new shopping method will need to have 7-Eleven's rewards app.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    The "not talking to another human being" being the key part. Limiting personal contact is a BIG part of the agenda. Only conversation through official, catalogueable and censorable means is to be encouraged. How will your social credit score be accurate if you can just TALK to someone random directly???

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    These stores cost a lot of money to set up and you still need people to stock the store and at least in the Amazon stores still have somebody at the door to monitor things so they will have higher- not lower- costs. Amazon stores only allow in people who are already signed up with the app and with your phone. That means you lose the casual wander into the store sales. If you have one clerk in a 7-eleven store and you need to keep a person monitoring the door, are you saving money? Probably lower theft loss costs.

    Amazon says you get to avoid lines to pay in their stores- but they only allow a certain amount of people in the store at a time so you do wait in line at times- not to pay but to get in.
