New Self-Checkout Argument: It's Less Humiliating

In the never-ending uphill battle to try and convince consumers that self-checkout systems are their friends, NCR has released a survey with a new twist: self-checkout can be less embarrassing.

In an NCR survey done with Australian and New Zealand consumers—it's a bit of a distance away, but the details make it worth the trip—, various products were ranked according to their red-face-generating capabilities.

The winners were: "libido enhancing vitamins" (the winner with 44 percent of Austalians and 35 percent of New Zealanders), hemorrhoid cream (a respectable showing at 29 percent and 37 percent respectively), incontinence products (28 percent and 38 percent) and condoms (20 percent and 25 percent).
