    There is a box under the tree, I think it might be an iPod. Does anyone know the dimensions of the box? Thanks! Happy X-mas!

    To answer your question directly:

    Yes, someone knows the dimensions of the iPod box. :D

    Anticipation is a feeling one develops inside himself. Dec. 25 acts as a medicine to create a new anticipation: how to use the iPod. :p

    Well, it's small. I also noticed that it's rather rectangular and boxlike. 6 sides, all the corners have nice 90 degree angles.

    I don't have one, but I remember seeing the iPods stacked behind the cash registers at the Apple Store. If I remember correctly, the boxes were not thin and rectangular like the iPod, but rather were almost a cube. Can someone who's bought an iPod recently verify this?

    Well, heres how you can check, give it a good shake, throw it down the stairs a few times, now if you hear a slight click when you shake it that is one of the hard drive platters that you have cracked. That means you have a(n) (now worthless) ipod.

    On a serious note: It's a cube, about 6x6x6. I can't find my box right now, I'll keep looking and post again if I find it.

    Then, again, it may only be a pack of CD-Rs. :rolleyes: :D

    He must really be having a hard time catching his breath. He said he saw a box under the tree, so it must be a tall tree. How hard can it be to find a flight of stairs? :D

    We have a 12 foot fake tree in our living room, which occupies stairways to another room. :D

    :)

    The dimensions of the iPod box?
    It's a cube, not that big, not that small.
    And it just might possibly be something else so maybe you shouldn't keep your hopes up. :p
    A lotta things look like the iPod box.

    A 7 foot christmas tree! (moan)
    Mine is a tiny one foot tall rosemary bush. :(

    Yeah that's a good idea for everyone. You never know when someone might be wanting to off you and put a bomb under the Christmas Tree with care.

    And inside this cubic foot box at the deep end of a tree was paper and a smaller box, labeled Stuffit Deluxe. :D

    I had a few of those today.

    The iPod packaging was bare, except for the wrapping paper, last year. It was almost a perfect 1/8 cubic foot cube.

    Wait a minute... You opened it on the 22nd... Shouldn't you have waited until Christmas day? I'm surprised Santa hasn't taken it away from you. (oh wait, he already has his own, with 980 christmas songs, 20 doobie brothers, and 1 sheryl crow... But that means it's only a 5 gig, so he could use your 10 gig!)

    Oh well, have fun. I've got a 10gig iPod too... I love it. I love it good...
