McDonalds trials music download kiosks

From (of all places) comes this article about kiosks at McDonalds:

"If you thought the addition of apple slices to the McDonald's menu was odd, wait until you get a load of Blaze Net. The burger chain is rolling out the high-tech device in some of its outlets, aimed at luring young consumers in by offering them the

chance to download ring tones, buy music, print digital photos and surf the 'Net while they scarf their Big Macs and fries.

The ATM-looking feature has been in place at a Chicago-area McDonald's since May 16, according to the Chicago Tribune. The kiosk sits in a new Starbucks-style area of the restaurant — called, of course, the McCafe — that serves fancy coffee drinks.
