You Talkin' to Me? Tech me out to the ball game: Press 1 for peanuts, 2 for Crack Jack

The Phils are trying out a new iPhone app that allows users to order food at CBP and have it delivered to their seats. Tony Lukes, Planet Hoagie, Bull's BBQ - you can get all of it without ever getting up.

Technogeeks and the lazy will no doubt love this idea, while cranky Luddites will see it as an affront to baseball's old school ways of using your feet prior to stuffing your face. What say the two of you?

I'm offended by your slur on cranky Luddites. You'll be hearing from my curmudgeonly attorney. I think the food app is a great idea, another indication perhaps that we've become the laziest people on Earth but a great idea nonetheless. Next game I go to, I'll be sure to order my favorite tasteless ballpark snack, a Super Pretzel, on my cell.

You're right. Cranky Luddites are people, too.

I wonder if the new app will allow for beer service as well. I know there are vendors who walk up and down the aisles, but they never seem to be around when I need my ninth bottle.

Guess you didn't get the memo: With the Inky's new ownership, I'm afraid you'll have to limit your intake to eight in the future.

Yes, but in exchange we get two weeks "vacation."

You boys are traveling down a slippery path. I'll stick to the initial point: I like the concept of the new app. Fewer lines and better service is a good thing, right? Plus, you get to watch baseball instead of hunt for food. Isn't that the idea of going to a game?

More time for beer and tasteless pretzels.
