    That, my friend, is exactly why I like Apple!

    Creative, stylish, functional, and funny!

    The UK site tells you not to chew the iPod shuffle. Attention to detail, huh? :p

    On the Mini Mac small print it says "Keyboard, mouse, megaphone and display sold separately." and "Keyboard, iPod mini, dock, hands, AirPort, Bluetooth and PC sold separately."

    you wait a whole hour to get a post squeezed onto the server, then two come along at once.

    double post...

    but since I'm here...

    I quite like the accessories that have been developed for the shuffle.
    splash proof dongle anyone?

    I saw that to. At first I didn't realize it was part of the comparrision to the Trident gum, and I was like, wow Apple sure is taken precautions in warning people. Then I saw the Trident thing and was like, ohhh now I get it. But yes, quite funny :D

    I thought that was hilarious when I read that...Didn't see the ones on the Mac Mini though.

    Glad they can throw a little bit of humor in there

    I plan on getting one of these new iPod Shuffle's.. Don't think I'll every try to chew on it though..

    My dream for 2005 would be for someone to come up with a hack that would make the triple-throw swich on the back toggle between playlist 1, playlist 2 and playlist 3, since I would rarely have any use for shuffle, and repeat would be a given.


    ..of course, no war and no poverty is a bigger dream of mine..

    Is this the first time that Apple has attempted a bit of humor on their site? I don't think I remember any other examples.....

    hey you know, there are some stupid people out there...

    Apple compared the iPod shuffle to 2 packs of gum... someone out there will probably be dumb enough to put the iPod shuffle in their mouth or something, then sue apple...

    actually, then again, anyone that dumb probably wouldnt be buying anything apple-related to being with...

    Hehehe....Do not eat the mac mini. The mac mini was made from an unknown material that fell from space, presumably of extraterrestrial origins. Do not taunt the mac mini.
