Convenience store chain 7-Eleven is determined to dip their Slurpee straws into the world of digital content, looking to offer music, movies and whatever else they can think of to their customers, saying "customers should be able to walk into a 7-Eleven store to burn their favorite songs onto a CD or download content onto their portable music player." Picture-perfect scenario: Their system allows me to bookmark a song I like on the radio so that when I go to 7-Eleven next, it asks me to confirm my song purchase when paying for gas and sends them (wirelessly) to my portable/car media player. With their talk that the digital delivery system will be viable for them within 10 years, I think they could have something that advanced up and running by then. (Thanks, Ravi!)
