Total Geekdom: Ordering Pizza Via Text Message

So I read last week you could order pizza via text message now, from Papa Johns. Was feeling like some pizza last night, so I decided to try it out. I already had an online account at Papa Johns, to order delivery, so I went there and checked it out. I set up 4 favorite orders, and then texted FAV to 47272. You have to have your mobile set up in your online account so it knows it is you first.

Once I texted FAV, it texted me back with my 4 options I set up, and I texted back FAV1 to order my first favorite. It wanted me to confirm, so I texted Y1 to confirm. Since I already had it set up online to deliver to my apt, and the tip amount set, and to use my check card as payment, I didn’t have to do anything. 35 minutes later, the pizza shows up, I sign the receipt, and all is good.

I think the next logical step is for me to just “think” about pizza and they just bring it to me automatically.
