they all have chips? A sandwich shop has a chip card reader (and potato chips, thanks @deep thought), a computer has computer chips, and a casino has poker chips.

Virus - spoiled food (i.e. potentially romaine lettuce in the US in Nov. and Dec.), a computer virus (malware, Trojan, etc.), the "Lady-of-the-Night" sorta virus (well, you know ;-P)
The letter C (works with O too). A sandwich shop, a computer and a casino.
