New World of Vending

In USA Today:   Good overview look at how vending is changing with the increasing use of alternative methods of payment beyond coins and bills.  Broad phone-as-wallet implications.    A good place to test the idea.   Using the vending machine as a new kind of social nexus for Gen Y.    A number of good examples are shown.  We looked at these changes, and the ability to link vending to the net for replenishment and data analysis as well,  inspired by a look at vending trends in Japan.
