A friend sent me this article and I had three immediate reactions to it, and then a fourth a bit later.
- They made a self-serve! That’s pretty cool.
- Wait. That’s a little dangerous.
- Oh. They have figured out how to charge you for a taste. The greedy bastards.
It’s that third point that stuck in my throat. And then it hit me:
4. This process has been casino’d.
That is to say; you hand over your “unlimited card of money” and press a pretty button over and over again to have “fun” dispensed to you.
And the more I think about that, the more I hate it.
