Order Starbucks from iPhone, Avoid Human Contact Altogether

Don’t you hate it when you have to put up with the so-called barista at your local coffee shop? You tell them exactly what you want and they inevitably mess it up. Come on, who can’t make a grande half-caf soy low-sugar vanilla extra hot latte with no whip? It’s so simple!

If you’re tired of having to wait in line and then deal with a grumpy cashier, Starbucks and Apple are coming to rescue, because you will soon be able to order your coffee straight from your iPhone or iPod Touch. The application will grant you full access to the menu, allowing you to customize your drink as you like it, and then you pay for it through your phone too. The only human interaction is when you pick up your drink from the barista.

This arrangement works because Starbucks will be offering free WiFi internet access to all iPhone users. Presumably, you’ll need some sort of credit card on file to make use of this service, but imagine the convenience during your midday caffeine run. No longer do you have to sound like Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons: “Worst coffee ever!”
