    File this one under humor, guys...

    I love it when obscure news sources try reporting on Apple, and go way off the mark
    Here's the latest: Apple Showers 1000th Download with Generous Gifts

    My favorite? It seems Alex Ostrovsky will receive a 1069 GB iPod. Never heard of them. Maybe they're coming on Tuesday.

    And don't forget, he also received a scholarship from Juilliard.

    wow. i can understand the 1,000 instead of 1,000,000,000. ok, not really. but where do you come up with a 1069 GB iPod. If he means 10 69 GB iPods, there isn't one. But a tarabite of info on an ipod, how many songs is that? :D ;) :p :rolleyes:

    And we fear these (Islamofascist) people? No wonder they can only score a successful attack once every 5 years or so.

    how you managed to screw up 2 paragraphs that much when chances are they were getting their facts from an apple press release is beyond me.

    Haha. The part that made me laugh was the part that said "He will receive a educational scholarship at the Juilliard Music Academy in New York." Why would you receive a scholarship for downloading music. Hah. Hmm.
