    That "POP" or whatever actually just has a little monocrome screen, the blue is just a piece of plastic, that middle bit is the screen. What crap.

    the Pop thing you were referring to has a chinese radio, my friend bought one and he heard chinese language and in the instruction manual, it has pictures of missing chinese kids and the batteries leak.

    er... i dont think in the ipod imitation one, they called their product ipod... altho they made a comparison to ipod nano (and yes, pretty much copied the form factor of ipod)

    and the radio part? unless you are in China, most likely you won't randomly go to a channel and you hear chinese radio... and radio certainly don't broadcast instruction in chinese (and assuming you don't understand chinese, how did you know it's instruction?)

    i dont like these products either.

    I like how they mention that it's "flat screen." I sincerely hope it's a flat panel, because even a flat screen CRT would make for a rather bulky MP3 player. :eek: :D

    Is that a big shuffle or a very small hot tub?

    It does seem totally off the wall to show it like that, like putting pugs in a punchbowl. (If one of those pugs is named "Spike", then somebody spiked the punchbowl. Tee hee.)

    And isn't it a bit ill-advised to put your iPod underwater?

    doctor Q, yes you are right, but if it is real, then it must be heavy, besides putting a ipod in a hot tub could corrode the battery, anyways though it is probably inflatable

    I learned chinese by school, but im not related to chinese people. The missing children on the manual are dead. This toy was made in 2003, the children died in 1997. It appears that also that there is a website mentioned in it, but the link is dead, but i did get to see the website, it has a popup that has a countdown box that says these children will die in 1200 hrs for example
