Why go to one of the many Apple stores in New York for your iPod when you can go to...Macy's? Racked is reporting that the department store is installing Apple vending machines, holding everything from iPods to Canon digital cameras to various accessories. (Perhaps the Macy's Pirate was looking to score some iPod booty in the Apple treasure chest last weekend.)

While the novelty is nice, there's no Genius Bar or glass staircase in a vending machine. And while the e-spots are touted as being "only at Macy's," there's been one at JFK airport (pictured) for some time now.
