I purchased a book from Barnes and Noble today, I needed to wait in line before getting to the checkout because the point of sale device has stopped scanning credit cards - the guy behind the counter appologised to everyone and said that the point of sale device had “locked up” and “needed to be rebooted”

It comes to something when a) someone working at a store needs to reboot the POS, and b) understands what rebooting the POS means...

I didn't get round to asking who the manufacturer of the POS was, or what O/S it was running... perhpas I should have...
