South Coast Plaza has an iPod Vending Machine - July 3rd, 2009

Okay, so I don’t get out much, but last night I was at South Coast Plaza and stumbled across this iPod vending machine. I had heard that such things existed before, but I didn’t think I would run into one unless I was in an alley in Japan. It turns out that there is one in Macy’s.
It is iPod branded, but has Sony and other other company products in it also. There is one screen in the upper left with marketing videos running in a loop and a touch screen on the right for picking your gadget.
There was clearly a security concern as there was a special video camera watching it and it was in the middle of a Macy’s, not in an alley in Japan.
So now, if it is too much trouble to get your iPod from the Apple Store 50 feet away, you can use the vending machine instead.
