22Moo developing PodBuffet iTunes kiosk

Australian hardware and software developer 22Moo today announced that it has begun development on an iTunes Kiosk called the PodBuffet. 22Moo said that the current prototype machine uses an Apple Mac mini, a 15-inch TFT touch screen with virtual keyboard software, a wireless internet connection, and a “customized application for timed access” to the iTunes Music Store. The PodBuffet will also feature multiple dock connectors and USB and Firewire ports for older iPods and iPod shuffles. “Soon iPod owners around the world can download videos and musics to their iPods from places such as airports, train stations, hotels, shopping centers, etc.,” the company said in its announcement.

Sounds great…... untill you get back home, sync to your current collection and delete what you just bought…  unless you use apple’s software to take your purchased media off and put on your computer…. wait… you cant do that either…..

sound like a firmware change/update would do the trick if apple is behind it. They tend to work out these problems ahead of time.

But if the Bluetooth iPod really comes true, wouldn’t this be pointless. What would be cool is a Bluetooth/wireless dock connector module that can download. That way, the older pods can be wireless too.
