What if I told you that you could have whatever you wanted out of the vending machine for free? You'd think I was talking crazy, wouldn't you? Turns out it's not such a crazy idea. Vending machine operator Apex Corp. (sorry folks they only vend in Japan) is trying out this idea. They'll soon offer coffee & other non-alocholic beverages for free (or at a low price), but there's one small catch - you have to sit through a 30-second advertisement before you get your beverage. The machines will be posted in areas that would "best suit the customers targeted by the advertisers," but then, what else would you expect?
