    Neither am I, but this is exactly what (godforbid) the iPod would look like if MS designed the box.

    I second that same thought .. and music does sound like it was made on Microsoft app.. Surely not from the True online Music store: ITMS :cool: :p :D

    Haha excellent. It's funny 'cause it's true.

    I wonder if a graphic designer did it, because while exaggerated there are some good points on it...

    Wow, that really hits the nail. Microsoft product boxes DO look like that.

    Brilliant. I particularly love the fold down card for the system requirements.
    Kinda disappointed that they didn't change the i-pod color to black or dark grey and add a few extra buttons to, y'know, add a little beef to the stark interface. Too simple.;)

    It is exactly how MS designs their boxes. All the fluf, no content.

    They didn't change the apple at the top of the box (or I missed that part).
    I wonder what that would look like

    Absolutely, I wondered the same thing. The points on that show what's wrong with bad design in general.

    Haha it's funny because Microsoft actually made that video :D

    So much for keeping leaks contained.
