A technology whose time has come. Saw this today in the Times, but couldn’t find it online (I guess they don’t think it’s worthy of their online readership). Anyway, this is the Skybox, a new home appliance by Maytag (available at Home Depot for $499) which will be your personal home vendor of 66 12-ounce cans, 33 12-ounce bottles or a combination of each, along with vending storage for snacks, chips and any other Sunday Night Football beverage you can think of.

Oh, and of course you get to ADVERTISE your favorite pro or college sports team on the front panel, and even switch them every season if you wish. Whoopeee! We would like to know when the Liberty or the Italian National Soccer Team fronts will come out, or when the Sex In The City or the Black Sabbath front will come out? And we’d like to stock it with Cristal….. MGR
