Google HotPot Kiosks Spotted in the Wild at PDX

I’ve just returned to the beautiful City of Roses after a fantastic packed-house AZIMA event in Scottsdale last night.

On my way out of the airport terminal this morning, I noticed this kiosk:

I did not notice it on my departing flight (from the next gate over) yesterday, so it may have been installed overnight.  Regardless of the specific timing, Google is continuing its HotPot marketing blitz in our fair city, though judging by the lack of activity around this kiosk in particular, Portlanders seem pretty non-plussed about it so far.

In case the taglines aren’t legible, they read:

“Need an outlet for your opinions? Start rating.”

“Take charge of your opinions. Start rating.”

“Plug in. Rate on.”

Apologies for the poor quality of these photos, but I’m waiting for the Apple-Verizon deal to go through before upgrading to an iPhone!
