View Full Version : Warrning- iPod Shuffle Small Print

Jan 13, 2005, 12:27 PM
Did anybody read the small print for Apple's iPod Shuffle (http://www.apple.com/ipodshuffle/).

Music capacity is based on 4 minutes per song and 128Kbps AAC encoding.
Do not eat iPod shuffle.
Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple com/batteries for more information.
Some computers require either the optional iPod shuffle Dock or a USB cable extender (sold separately).

I can't believe this. Is this a joke or is it real? In any case be warrned. If they are serious then they should state that the wrapper needs to be removed before using. I bet that the gum has that warrning. Perhaps it is deliberate humor, like theDog Cow (http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn1031.html) or the WOM (http://home.earthlink.net/~strahm_s/manuals.html) (Write Only Memory) chip diagram in the old Apple ][ manual?

Nice to see Apple having a bit of fun with their products!

Edit: beaten to the punch!

I did a search and didn't find anything on the board about it.
If so- let this thread die.
