    Holy crap. Domino's pizza is the worst of the "big three" (Pizza Hut, Papa John's and Domino's) but their site is the COOLEST!

    You order a pizza and it tracks the status of your pizza from birth to delivery! Pretty sweet! :D

    Strange. It doesn't keep track of accidental drops.

    I wonder how they do this for every single pizza. Barcode? Or is it just an estimation?

    It's the RFID chip in the crust. That accounts for the extra crunch.

    It's the barcode. At first I thought it was just estimated/made up, but when it told me the pizza was on it's way by someone named Alex, or whatever it was, and Alex showed up to deliver it about 10 min later, it seems to be quite real.

    Those drops aren't accidental. It's part of the recipe.

    They give everyone a badge that says, "Alex." How would you know the difference?! It works for guys and gals!

    I knew it was something, but the timing was pretty good.

    The other cool thing about domino's is that you can order a pizza via text message. Technology is amazing!

    Papa Johns is another one that you can order online, but I don't think they have any sort of tracking system. I have to use that time digging through the seat cushions for money and figuring out what the tip should be.

    The best pizza in the world is Ledo Pizza, but there's no ordering over the internet.

    Too bad technology can't make their pizza not suck.

    Yes, pretty neat. I like ordering Pizza from my MacBook sitting on my couch and watching it delivered. I have to disagree with the OP, Domino's (around here at least) is the best Pizza.

    This leads me to ask is the Alex voice thing in osx male or female? I dont have a mac yet and you made me ponder.

    Also the pizzar tracker is neat, wish i lived in a city, Where i live we contact them through morse code and they send it out on a donkey.
