This fancy looking Brazilian Coke machine has no soda inside it at all. Not even some crazy Fanta flavor that would probably be super popular in Brazil. Instead it dispenses small allotments of data to anybody who has a pre-paid cellullar phone plan. Well, anybody that has a pre-paid cellular phone plan that uses an Android phone. And only 50 of them. At least for now.
To use this you actually have to physically put your phone underneath the machine and press the lever as if you were dispensing soda. Typing that makes me realize I would be poor at explaining to someone how to use a soda fountain. Phones can then access such things as social networks, weather, and something called Coke FM. Whatever it is, I'm sure it still works better than iTunes.
Each time someone uses the machine they get 20 megs of data which, according to PSFK, is two weeks of data, or for someone like me, about three-and-a-half minutes.
In other internet matters, we're doing news again, and somewhat more properly this time. Exciting! We'll be sure to discuss all that whenever that audio thing happens again once we figure out which hour out of the 168 there are in a week that we're both available.
