iPod vending machines rake in the moolah
An iPod Vending Machine! This is among those one liners which make me feel like holding a gun to my head and sorrowfully announcing, “I’ve seen everything”. Have iPods become so easy-to-buy that purchasing them is as easy as getting some morning coffee or Coke. If you feel this is all a joke then how about this: the Atlanta Journal Constitution claimed that a single iPod vending machine sold a large number iPods that totally amounting to 55,000 dollars in a single month. Yes, we used to kick and fiddle with vending machines as kids with hope of grabbing an extra gumball or two. But however, this is a limit. Imagine what people are capable of doing to a vending machine that spat out something so hot. The success of this concept will make iPod vending machines an epidemic, at least in the US if not around the globe.
