Pull Over, I Need A Tune.

U.K. digital entertainment firm, Inspired Broadcast Networks, is preparing to launch the world’s first vending machines that dispense music, not snacks.
According to the News Telegraph, Norman Crowley, the company’s chief executive officer, said: “All you need is a mobile phone or an MP3 player and a coin in your pocket. You select the track you want and, depending on what type of device you have, it will either download using a wireless connection, or you can plug it in directly.”
The company claims to be in the final stages of negotiations with major record labels over rights. However, it has been unable to sign an agreement with Apple, which means owners of i-Pods will not be able to use the kiosks for some time.
