  1. That’s awesome! I already have a 4G 20GB ipod, and I just got by brother a 4GB ipod mini for his birthday. I wish they had one of those machines here in Halifax.

  2. Very cool! I only have a 3rd generation ipod… meaning I’m not one of the cool kids anymore. grrr If only there were something like that in my neck of the woods, I could lean towards the impulse buy… aren’t impulse buys the best?

  3. I fly through Atlanta all the time and those machines have been there for a while. I too was quite surprised to see them while getting to my next flight.
    The vending machines carry digital camera and other devices too and are from a company called Zoom Systems

    I myself was glad to see them as anything to help my stock price go higher is always a welcome sign.

  4. What a marketing tool…. must be higher priced for the Vendor & Airport cut of the sales! But I guess if you forgot yours & you’re desperate ….. %-PThanks Leo, have never seen one of these!

  5. We saw those while on a layover between Hartford and San Francisco. I couldn’t help but wonder how many non-tech-savvy folks would buy an Ipod, expecting to be listening to music on their flights or vacations, having no idea about burning or transferring music from a PC. I know I should have more faith in people, but I have a relative who insists he needs a digital camera, yet doesn’t have a computer, or understand the concept of data storage.
    Also, I wonder how you would go about returning your last-minute gift purchase, after discovering cousin Bobby already has one. Ebay, anyone?

  6. Leo…I’ve always enjoyed your take on the world of personal “confusers”…
    One great regret was the loss of your humor, knowledge and great understanding which was exhibited nightly on TechTV…now unfortunately a wasteland created by Comcast…
    You have rallied well and I must now seek you out…
    I download all of your MP3 files and listen in Colombia, S.A….
    Perhaps one day we will see a regeneration of true tech help on television…and not the wild, immature primping of the present crowd in place…
    Many thanks…

  7. Good heavens… who’s carrying around that many quarters in their pockets? And how do they get through airport security? LOL
