Jukebox + iPhone equals a pickup at a bar

Skout is installing touch-screen devices in bars that are jukeboxes and dating terminals with location awareness

Skout is a location aware dating service that lets you use an iPhone or other GPS enabled mobile device to find potential matches. Now the company is moving into bars with a large jukebox that can "skout out" potential mates in and near the bar. You can dedicate a song to your would-be sweetheart or send an SMS or virtual flowers.

Skout's chief marketing officer, Patrick McGovern, explains the system to Larry Magid who wants his wife Patti to know that his interest in the subject is purely professional.
