Now that you can't SuperSize anymore thanks to that nosy parker and his inflammatory documentary, we've been wondering what to do with all that extra change left over from our Big Mac meals. Well patent sleuth extraordinaire Barry Fox has uncovered a filing that suggests Disney has a plan to relieve us of that pesky change by selling us a slice of digital content pie with each Arby's Melt or Chalupa or Six Dollar Burger. With so many people carrying around storage-rich mobile devices, Disney figures it can charge you to trickle, say, one-fifth of a movie each morning when you hit Wendy's for a Frosty and chili. The system proposes using either WiFi or Bluetooth for content transfer, and could possibly even include giveaway devices. Why? Well, it benefits the restaurant by encouraging the customer to return several times in order to finish downloading The Dukes of Hazzard, y'know?
