The smart water is for people who thought their smart phone would suffice as a disaster kit. They can use their smart phones to transfer all their money to those who have for sale what they've run out of.

I think you're right - but I also don't think we can discount the human element. The business benefits are a major factor - but some of the impetus will be from individuals who've seen a genuine way to help fellow humans in crisis, in a way that also benefits the business,

At least we don't have to worry about Irma, because Rush says that's fake news.

Well, I'm glad to hear that because if Irma's path continues the way they're predicting, it will hit where I live. We are making a list and getting supplies. Let's pray for Florida.
