    On apple's site they now have links to view the "1984" superbowl ad. I was watching and then I had to hit pause, because it looks like the hammer thrower is wearing an ipod! Is this some digital manipulation, or a weird coincidence (some kind of walkman?)? Here's a frame grab, but don't take my word for it, the video's available on apple's site

    EDIT: This is definitely a cool little joke from apple. And its definitely an iPod

    Yeah, I remember noticing this when they re-released the ad.

    The iPod looks too big, but that probably has more to do with painting the old walkman out, which is bigger than the iPod.

    I wonder how she got those earbuds to stay put while she was running around with that hammer? ;)

    I noticed the iPod live via satellite at my local Apple Store. Steve said that, "we just couldn't resist."

    eyelikeart I thought that the earbuds were made substantial enough that they would stay in your ear.;)

    actually she's a very big lady, that was a prototype they were working on in '84, the problem was "iTune" wasn't as catchy as the now ever so famous iTunes and iPod combo.

    I figured it out, MWSF was my first day back at college, I was busy at as hell and missed it, so later that night I just came back and skimmed the overview.

    OK, I went back and looked at the original 1984 ad and she does not have anything on her - so I don't know why people keep saying that there was a walkman on her waist.

    BTW, yes, good eye catching the iPod. [/sarcasm] ;)
