    I'm not sure how many have seen this, but I think it's relatively new. The Madonna iPod

    Kinda cool. I'd kinda wish they offered sigs of other artists, but I guess it's all right if your a madonna fan... It's the ultimate must-have. I wonder how much these things will sell for in 2-3 years, or later on. They're definitely collectors items.

    Wow kinda cool.

    Not bad prices either, I'll bet they'll sell for twice as much on eBay in a year.[​IMG]

    Maybe a good investment, buy about three, keep them in the origional packaging, sell two on eBay, keep one for myself (I luv Madonna!)

    Here's tha challenge to all you bored folk with nothing better to do.

    Keep trying the following url but change out the word madonna for your favourite artists until you find something.

    Code:
    http://www.apple.com/promo/ipod/[B]madonna[/B] .html
    then come back and tell us. :)

    You never know it's worked before.

    Re: How 'bout a Beck iPod...

    wow, that was random! I wonder how many others are there.

    I tried Sting, Bjork, Stones, RollingStones, Jagger, Bowie, Elfman. If they have Madonna and Beck, there have to be others. Who else was in their iPod commercial.....

    So there is no indication on the site about these special iPods, yet I went and did this....

    What is this all about and how did you find out about it?

    woah this is really random, the page doesnt even have the regular links up for the store so I'm guessing the promo isnt official yet, how did you come across this?

    I did a search at apple.com on Madonna and there was nothing directly, but the 7th link brougt up www.madonna.com/madonna and when you go there you get a little popup window ;) !!!!

    Just till the 8th of January, so you better move!

    Oh, and no such popup at www.beck.com

    So it continues until MWSF. Maybe Apple's planning on announcing more artists then? This is a really cool idea. I would love to see a Weezer and a Ben Folds iPod.

    wow.. this is awesome.. these things could really become collector's items

    btw, has anybody seen the music video for Jennifer Lopez's "Jenny from the Block"?... the ipod makes numerous appearences in it.. it just goes to show how "cool" the ipod is... its no longer just a geeky gadget for us computer nerds, but something that everyday people can use.. but we all knew that didn't we.. hehe :)

    Maybe this means that one will be avble to handwrite, or draw something and they will engrave it - at a much higher cost than these are going for.

    But, all in all - WHY? IT'S SUCH A WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT - NOT TO MENTION R&D! WHY! GIVE US THE G5!!!!!

    I just saw an article about the madonna one at www.macminute.com , and figured that no one here had mentioned them yet. I wonder how many different artists there are?

    YES! This means that Inkwell is coming to the iPod 2 along with the Newton OS for Handwriting recognition. Also expect bluetooth for Blazing USB 1.1-speed wireless sync, and more!

    It's true! I have a friend that knows the father of the priest that baptized a janitor at Apple, so he's practicly an expert!

    First off, R&D would have nothing to do with this. It's a promotion, so therefore it was created by the marketing department.

    Secondly, if R&D was involved, it's not like everyone in the entire department sat around and debated the idea. They have specific teams that work on each product.

    Thirdly, if you think you can run Apple so well, then apply for a job with them and prove it. When you put them in bankruptcy, we'll all be sure to thank you.

    I thought that the Madonna version would have two dials or something. :D I guess she's reformed now that she has a child.

    Lame.

    Now, if they included all of the artists songs preloaded on the iPod, that would be something.

    no radiohead.

    Here's the fourth (and last, as of right now)

    NO DOUBT

    http://www.apple.com/promo/ipod/nodoubt.html

    Ya heard it here first. Oh, and don't miss the fact that Apple's offering the $29.05 discount on these, too -- just like with the other custom engraving. Add one to your cart and see for yourself. :)
