They're gonna fail, cause their idea is dumb. The insulting part is that they openly state wanting to make corner stores obsolete. No. Wait. The insulting part is that they think that smart phone powered operating machines are something people want. No. Wait. The insulting part is that other people have probably already thought of it first, dismissed it as dumb, yet these guys want to go ahead with it and probably expect idiots to put out cold, hard, VC $ to support them.

Dala is heading to the grocery store to pick up havarti cheese and a few jalapenos cause I'm gonna try and make her hamburger, on rye bread, with havarti cheese, jalapeno, onion, and mayo. What are the chances these shitty vending machines would have havarti and jalapenos?

Zero, because they aren't trafficking in perishables. They are literally only selling things that fit in a vending machine.
