Nice photo tour of Kohls in Colorado. EV Charging stations are all over Google maps and now you have combination engagements where you stop at a Sonic for burger while charging your Tesla. Not sure I have ever seen a Tesla at Sonic come to think of it.
My writeup and photo tour on bill payment stations for AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Xfinity/Comcast got the inbox ringing a bit. Along with being knowledgeable on the subject apparently I am supposed to be a mind reader.
I think we are going to do a bit more on Linux and currency handling bill payment coming up.
Company News — New launched company is American Kiosks. Looks like the URL is live too — https://americankiosks.com/ — This isn’t the first company that KIOSK has spawned (Kiosk Innovations down the street from us).
Trade Shows and Associations — We’re planning on exhibiting at DSE to try and support its rise from the ashes. Hopefully kma is association sponsor and kioskindustry is media sponsor. This is natural extension of AVIXA.

That’s it for this newsletter. LinkedIn offered it up as an option for me so I figure best to try it out and see what if anything it is good for. Here are my main Flip channels and I post the kiosk stuff on kioskindustry.org
