Pretty much undefined, although interestingly enough there is a very verbose Wiki Page on it:
Apparently is some sort of cultural intellectual property transgression. How that's possible and who owns the rights to the IP... yeah grey area.
I think in Europe it might actually be illegal to run loss leaders to force out your competition. The Europeans dont let their companies get away with quite as much as the Americans do
It's more that I couldn't be bothered to figure it out since the cashier is faster. It's the same thing at the grocery store. If I have simple items and the line is more than 3 ppl long I go self checkout but often there is a line for that and it moves at roughly the same speed (even though there are 4 stands). The bigger problem is bulk items, fruits, vegetables and alcohol, those take a lot of time to enter into the system. Way too many menus and buttons and very high error rates.
McDonald's is my favorite place to take a dump while on the road so I stopped by one a couple months with a self service machine. Spent maybe 30 seconds futzing around with it, couldn't figure out how to order a coffee proceeded to order one in about 10 seconds at the cashier.
Self serve is not that hard but big companies like that suck at making user interfaces. Just think of how slow the stupid checkout machines are and they are 3rd or 4th gen these days
Steam sale is live, not super impressed
Any new Indy games that have come out recently that I should watch for? If Factorio goes on sale I'll probably buy that not sure about anything else
