Got KFC outlet like this here meh?

I’m not a fan of KFC food, so not been in or near outlet for years. From NYT Dealbook

Fast food gets a reboot in China: tuna-pesto paninis, paid for by facial recognition. When Michelle Xian wandered into one of the fast-food restaurants at a shopping mall here on a recent weekday, she didn’t realize it was a KFC. The modern décor featured an open kitchen and hanging plants, and the menu included tuna-and-pesto paninis and quinoa-and-corn salads. Customers were busy placing orders via smartphone, using QR codes printed on tables, or through a facial-recognition system that matches their images to their Alipay digital wallets.
“I don’t normally go to KFC because it’s not that healthy,” said Ms. Xian, 30 years old, who ordered a chicken sandwich before being told where she was. “This is more aligned with new trends.” – The Wall Street Journal

F&N/APB: Fun & games

In Corporate governance on 26/07/2012 at 6:02 pm

The price of APB closed at the takeover price, down 3.9%. Bit strange as I tot that the reason it traded to $52 yesterday was because it was in the interest of some people to keep it at above the takeover price of $50, making it more difficult for F&N to accept the bid by tomorrow. Watch and wait.
