Electronic Tourist Kiosk
On the way to take a cruise on the river in Goa I noticed an electronic tourist information Kiosk. This is essentially a PC in a box with a touch sensitive screen. This is the second unit I have seen in Goa and neither was operating. This is much the same as in Australia, where these units are installed in a rush of enthusiasm and then are not maintained. Tourists usually don't know enough to be able to ask a question of the machine.
