arrive at the airport with plenty of time to spare and dig into your
attaché case for the trusty iPod only to realize that it’s still
connected to your G5 desktop at home – what would you do? Normally
you’d have to give up on the dream of listening to some tunes on the
plane ride and read a magazine or perhaps buy some headphones from the
airport gift shop and awkwardly listen to any music you might have on a
your laptop computer. If Zoom Shops newest invention catches on,
chances are strong that forgetful travelers with a credit card and a
thing for impulse buys will never have to suffer without an iPod again.
In Atlanta’s Hartsfield International and San Francisco International
airports, new vending machines have popped up that will let travelers
purchase iPod minis, iPod shuffles, cell phones, digital cameras and
other small electronics gadgets.
