ha! whatever! theres no way Coca Cola (for example) makes vending machines that are connected and operated by computers... you'll have to do it yourself. It shouldn't be too too hard.. jus make an electronic relay switch of some sort

First off, Coca-Cola doesn't make it's own machines. They're contracted out.
Second, the newer ones (from about 2000 onward) all have onboard chips with interface capability. That's how they update and maintain those suckers.
