McDonald's Halts Pilot of Digital Info Kiosks

A closely-watched pilot of kiosks that would allow McDonald's patrons to print photos, download ringtones and burn music CDs was recently halted in the US.

The fast-food restaurant chain declined to say why the tests were stopped, other than to note that they have been received positively so far by customers, and that tests will continue in McDonald's in Germany.

This pilot does not appear to be related to McDonald's tests of self-service ordering kiosks reported in the fall.
