'Pizza button' takes online ordering to a new level

Posted by Mike Luttrell

If you thought ordering pizza online was convenient, wait until you see this.

Red Tomato Pizza in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, has introduced a pizza ordering button.

That's right - it's a magnet that you can stick onto your refrigerator, and when clicked, it beams a signal through your Internet connection, to Red Tomato's existing online ordering system, and automatically places an order for your favorite pizza.

The market of ordering pizza online has no doubt become one of the most popular advancements to the Internet since, well, other popular things on the Internet.

For chains like Pizza Hut, Domino's, and Papa John's, online ordering is becoming one of the most significant parts of their business.

The best part is that it is easy to roll out across hundreds or even thousands of locations throughout the country, and it creates a much more accurate and efficient process for everyone involved.

Likewise, the market for "smart" refrigerators is starting to increase. Samsung refrigerators will soon let you send Twitter messages, play music, and even see your upcoming schedule on Google Calendar.

LG's smart fridge will help users maintain their diets and beam recipes to your oven, provided you have a top-of-the-line LG oven.

In other words, companies are really trying to capitalize on that very important human emotion of hunger.
