Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

McDonald's has opened its first cyber fast food outlet.

The restaurant, in Tel Aviv, Israel, has more than 20 computer terminals where customers can surf the Net, Reuters reports.

To get online, punters buy a token for around $2 at the counter. This entitles them to 20 minutes on the Web - or just enough time to wolf down a kosher Big Mac and fries.

"It reflects the lifestyle of youngsters in Israel and in the world - to eat fast food and use the Internet at the same time," Omri Padan, McDonald's Israel CEO, told Israel Radio.

The tech-savvy 120 seat burger joint also sells software and has facilities where kids can play computer games for free. ®
