Make it a Festiva they'll never forget by giving them a cheap Chinese knockoff of the thing they really want!

Hahaha.
Although, where on that ad does it say it's an iPod?

How silly. I don't think JC Penny really cared to use Apple, they'd have to be able to use it and they probably don't sell the brand. Think about it. :cool:

why would JCPenny use apple stuff again?

why do you feel every mp3 player must be an ipod?

how does this affect you?

Feels great when that $49 cheap chinese knockoff gets lost or stolen. Been there - lost that.:mad:

And I bet the cheap chinese knockoff can get a radio station - a feat none of the new ipods can match.

The Festivus pole need not be adorned with iPods when Creative and Sansa start at $9.

i think what he's getting at is a lot of companies who market things will use other name brand products to help show off their products (though in that picture i don't know what they're marketing, clothes?!)


if you want to see black market iPhone's from china go to dealextreme.com (www.dealextreme.com) and look around the Cell Phone section..it's an ugly site D:

Why is everything suddenly an Apple knockoff? Because of its shape? I mean, come on. Sometimes the fanboi-ism goes a little far. Stop idealizing everything Apple and seeing it everywhere. It's just an MP3 player for ****'s sake.

/end rant. :mad:

Agreed... anyway, that's a real MP3 player from a relatively major brand, isn't it? I don't know who makes it, but I'm fairly sure I've seen people carrying it around occasionally.

well here is how i see things. if apple sells (more) iPods, they would have more leverage when dealing with film and music companies... more iPods more sales in the iTunes store... and hopefully, apple could give us something, which would be something positive for us consumers...

I'm pretty sure that JCPennEy sells those MP3 players in their store. It'd be kind of dumb to have an actual iPod in the ad if they don't even sell them to begin with... and they are a retail clothing store, they aren't focusing their sales around these small electronics.
