Entertainment Information Terminal
ChicagoFunNews.com "kiosk" information terminals were created and deployed as described here through 2000-2003, and positively reviewed by the Illinois Entertainer in 2001.  v

The Bedno.com ENTERTAINMENT INFORMATION TERMINAL is a small computer which continuously runs a special custom Bedno.com program. This program shows EXCELLENT EVENT LISTINGS of current and upcoming Chicago fun, plus a categorized COMPREHENSIVE DIRECTORY of fun Chicago places, ideas and resources, AND it shows HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS of Chicago fun! Finally, it gives background information about Bedno.com and can take free subscriptions and occasionally display sponsor ads.

Attract more NEW and REPEAT CUSTOMERS with this unique and compact device. To qualify for hosting an entertainment information terminal you should represent a Chicago business with substantial customer traffic, such as a music, clothing or book store, services, city facility, or entertainment venue, and be prepared to cover some installation costs. You'll get a classic laptop computer pre-loaded with software. The software is very sophisticated and includes encryption, fault recovery, and automatic updating capability by floppy disk or modem without requiring a dedicated phone line or Internet access. You must be responsible for an extremely simple updating procedure which should be performed at least weekly. You may optionally add a printer and modem. Classic hardware is used so theft and damage are of little concern. The unit can be secured with a simple laptop security chain. Best participants will be given free advertising on terminals at other locations. Planned future features include coupon and VIP pass printing.
