When I was younger, I considered the job of salesclerks really intriguing. I would stand near one and watch her punch numbers rapidly on the cash register. Everything was done manually back then.
Now, though, POS hardware is very sophisticated. There are units with scanners and all you need to do is run the barcode under the scanner and the price automatically appears on the monitor. Then, the more advanced ones feature touch-screen technology, which until recently was for mobile phones only. Well, I guess I can say that POS systems still amaze me. I thought I have outgrown that fascination, but I guess that’s the child in me that will forever be here.
