Learn, learn, learn

So what are planning to learn this new year? Now there is a new tool you can use which may be able to divide your learning material into small chunks and periodically flash a piece at you every few minutes while you are busy doing something else on the computer. This way you may be learning in small chunks while you go about doing the normal things you already do on your computer. It sounds like a very interesting concept.

MyHalo: Online POS

I just learned about this one, but already I can see how this service introduces many new add-on services not possible with a normal Point Of Sale (POS) system. By connecting a normal POS system to the net, one immediate benefit is accessibility from anywhere. So the restaurant manager can access it from his back office and the corporate office can access it from a remote location, while the waitress accesses it from her portal.

There are still many other types of systems out there just begging to get connect online. When this happens, many new add-on services can be imagined and implemented. What offline systems can you think of that can benefit from this?
