iPod Vending Machines at SFO
I haven’t seen them myself, because it’s actually been a surprisingly long time since I’ve taking a plane to leave the city, but apparently SFO has vending machines which sell iPods. The vending machines were created by Zoom Systems, a San Francisco-based company (of course) and include other pricey items in addition to the iPod. Although they have been dubbed iPod vending machines, they’re called “Zoom Shops” by the company. The idea is that you can pick up the items that you need in the modern world when you realize that you’ve forgotten them, offering the kind of instant gratification that I find easy to find in this city. However, I have to wonder, how do you get the music on to the machine to use during the flight?
