Mix: Steve Jobs, Macy’s, Walkman phone, CNET

Apple CEO Steve Jobs made an appearance at the grand opening of Apple’s new Fifth Avenue flagship store on Friday. He was also interviewed on NBC Nightly News and CNBC.

Federated Department Stores Inc., the parent company of Macy’s, has announced that it is installing large vending machines that will dispense iPods at 180 Macy’s stores across the U.S.

Sony Ericsson says it will offer a new Walkman cell phone in Japan next month that will enable users to download music wirelessly onto their handsets in a partnership with No. 2 mobile carrier KDDI.

CNET has announced the addition of four new podcasts that “provide consumers with tips, tricks and advice about navigating today’s digital world.” The new podcasts include: “Gadget Girls,” “Studio C,” “MP3 Insider” and “The Real Deal.”

I wonder who decided that selling iPods in Macy’s was a good idea.  Talk about an impulse buy.

“Lets see, I’ve just bought a bunch of new clothes, make-up, and a nice smelling perfume…  Oh heck, may as well grab an expensive electronic device too.”

ALSO, If you buy an iPod from one of those vending machines, who do you go to if you open the box and the thing flat out doesn’t work, or if you just want to return it and get your money back?  Do you take it back to Macy’s or do you have to contact the folks that own the vending machines?
