Restaurant Tablet Menus Are Over-hyped

An old friend of my from my days at HughesNet sent me a link to a news article outlining how tablets used for “digital dining” represent a growing subset of digital signage, self-service and tablet computing for business.

Can Digital Signage Revive the Dying POS Industry?
