|موضوع: iPod Vending Machines in Jordan 5/2/2009, 2:06 pm|| |
The Vending Machine isn’t something new, in fact, it is ancient. its been in use in the western world, Japan, China and a lot of countries forever now. in fact they are so popular and has become an integral part of every day life that there is virtually a vending machine for absolutely anything you could think of. from flowers to subway tickets to disposable cameras to phone cards to beer to magazines. anything. even iPod vending machines.
Will we ever have Vending machines in Jordan? Probably not, due to the mentality of disregard, carelessness and negligence for anything that is public property they will probably get destroyed to get robbed out of contents, or just for the heck of it.
Still, its not a far fetched thought, nor is it an extravagant luxury. some well placed machines in select areas can do much good, lets say for bottled water or beverages and snacks, prepaid phone cards, or prepaid internet cards, or perhaps even cigarettes and newspapers? or dare i say even iPods?
The first modern coin-operated vending machines were introduced in London, England in the early 1880s, dispensing post cards. I wonder, in what century will wee see vending machines on the Jordanian streets?
