So while getting fat with your Big Mac's you can now surf the net

It's all true :)

[espotting.com...]

Since the trial launch in January 2003, the McDonald's Internet Terminals have seen an incredible take up of usage, more than 1.4 million people view the current estate monthly with 26% daily terminal usage. By the end of 2004 this e-media audience will have grown to almost 10 million viewers each month, notably one of the largest public electronic media fleets in the UK.

Nice little flash interface to appeal to the target market:

Does anyone have stats if people actually buy products from these terminals?

I see them in airports all the time, but the possibility of keylogging or other issues makes it so I will never use any machine for certain info that's not my own.

I can't imagine anyone buying from these terminals, so anyone with a store is going to be very impressed
