Would You Like a Coke with That Ipod?


At TheDomains.com, Mike talks about his experience buying an Ipod from a vending machine. Although the experience wasn’t as good as expected, its neat to see this type of POS buying opportunities.  Some day, Mike won’t even have to swipe his credit card. He will aim his cell phone at the vending machine, push a few buttons, and voila, a new Ipod!

    I bought a palm pilot from Kozmo back in the day and thought that was pretty cool – vending machine is awesome.

    I spent my vacation in Philippines, where the local use their mobile phone to pay for books, theater ticket, student allowances, other services. They are way ahead of US mobile development.

    Makes me wonder what they already have in Japan… I’ve heard some pretty neat stories :)

    In 1997, when I lived in Brussels, everyone had their Nokias; I was amazed at the lively European cell phone culture.

    Back in the states, we still had our “Bag phone,” which cost over a dollar a minute, and had a regular handset and car adapter (no battery). Your car died, your phone died.

    Ha! I remember the Bag Phone. My dad was a reporter until the mid ’90s and he would lug one around. What a long way we’ve come.
