Earlier this afternoon I was at Walgreen‘s, which for those who aren’t aware’t, is a drug and convenience store. I was waiting on a prescription to get filled. With some time to kill, I looked around the store for some entertainment. I started to marvel at the sheer amount of tech that can be had at what’s a “drug-store.”
In the above pic, you have some mice , a Ethernet Cable and a headset. These are just some of the things I have seen at Walgreens. These items I have kind of grown to expect seeing but I was even more surprised at how much more technology products Walgreens had.
I saw SD Cards.
A digital camera.
Inkjet printer ink.
They also have many different sizes of USB Thumb Drives with the Duracell name on them and others.
Headphones of all kinds of brands. Nothing really high quality but better than nothing.
A Coby MP3 player with 4 Gigs of storage
One of really surprising things I have seen at Walgreens, a iPod dock!
A USB Cable.
From the as seen on tv section at Walgreens, the Magic Jack!
Also as seen on tv, the Jupiter Jack.
Finally, is something that should not be a surprise, but shows just how much technology has been integrated into our lives. Yes, this is a Glucometer with a USB jack. Check your sugars and then hook it up to a USB port to download the data and keep track of your blood sugar. A must for those with Type 2 diabetes.
They didn’t have this at my Walgreens, but I have to share the Delstar e-Book reader that is on their website that Carly shared with me.
Technology has been totally integrated into our society. You need to look no further than the local drug store for proof.
So what interesting things have you seen in your drug store. Let is know!
