    Am I the only geek who thought naming cases for the iPod nano "Tubes" was cool because it is a reference to Carbon nanotubes, a promising topic in physics that has recently emerged in the past few years.

    Apple has always tried to create clever names and I think they were tipping their hat to the scientific community with this one. Perhaps I'm just a crazy geek grabbing at straws here. Did anybody else make this connection?

    I noticed the "carbon nanotube" thing right away... in fact, I mentioned it in another thread a couple of days ago.

    Huh? I even did a search before posting but didn't see it - must not have looked hard enough.

    Heh, that's pretty clever. I'll most likely be getting a tube when they come out, but for know my iPod socks will have to do.
