I read the post, and tried it myself a few times, clearing the cache each time. The only place it took me was www.apple.com/ipod

That site is pretty funny, there are even screen savers there (based on the iPod ads).

From the content I have the feeling that this page is designed for kids.

That site also makes my computer run slow and was hard to get a screen shot of it (took me 6 attempts to get it).

When you change the colour of the background, the background song also changes.
