It seems like there are less reasons to go into stores and deal unpleasant salesmen these days. This is because you can get practically everything you could ever need from a vending machine. Think of it, you can get food, drinks, iPods and flash memory without ever having to interact with another human being.
What, you haven't seen a vending machine that drops flash memory? That's because the first one wasn't installed until this past Monday. You're welcome to see it at London Gatwick Airport's North Terminal. That's right, it's over in the UK.
