McDonalds In China - Equipped With Computers

McDonalds in the past was synonymous to children but now McDonalds is targetting at a different group. Even though Uncle McDonald sits majestically at the doorways, you can hardly find children in there. Instead adults have found a hub for free online services and a great meeting place at an affordable price.

China has taken it one step further. They even have computers in their outlets where patrons can use it free of charge for a maximum of 15 mintues. And of course one has to stand. This is to discourage people from monopolising the computers.

Wow! That's cool! But standing? Not my cup of tea though it does help if you need to use a computer to search for something when you are outside : )

hi foongpc
actually 15 mins is a breeze when u stand in front of the comp. its when your time is capped that you feel times flies.
