    Hey there, dudes and dudettes...

    This is your Iggmeister here with some really cool news about future innovations.

    What would you do if you were shopping in one of the major chain retail stores, and a drone flew up next to you and asked, "May I help you?"

    What would you do if you your shopping cart spoke to you and told you how to get to the tomato section.

    While these things are not yet part of reality, there have been patents filed for these concepts by one of largest retailers in the world.

    With my luck the smart shopping cart would get upset with me and start speaking abusively. A typical conversation would probably go like this, "Oh great smart shopping cart, where would I find the computer games?"

    The smart shopping cart would respond with something like, "What's a matter with you, you stupid punk? This is a grocery store. There is no computer games section, you moron..."

    I know, I know, this scenario would probably never occur in real life, so I shouldn't worry about it.

    Anyway, gotta run...

    See ya later,
