Ireland’s Sunday Business Post reports today that Noel Hogan has put up the financial backing for a new plan to install hundreds of entertainment kiosks around Ireland.
The “Digital Jet” Kiosks will offer multimedia content — digital books, music, and videos — that users will be able to download by connecting their MP3 players, laptops, and mobile phones. The kiosks will be placed in airports, universities, and other high-traffic areas and will allow, for example, someone to download a digital book before they board a flight.
Longtime Cranberries financial manager Alan McEvoy got Noel involved in the venture. “The machine can be updated easily so it will never be dated,” McEvoy said.
The first machines will roll out in mid-February. McEvoy plans to have 300 kiosks installed around Ireland by the end of 2006.
