    Not bad - they've had better articles, this one made me smile but not laugh out loud.

    It's all in my mind! :D

    This guy is so right!

    He forgot to mention the iPod is not water prof.

    For us the musicians, we have so much music in our minds that an iPod just won't do.

    Well I have a new PowerBook in my mind ! Oh how great, no batteries to charge, no worries about it being outdated, it just does exactly what I want it to!

    For those who don't easily take offense (like me), the Onion is just great.

    I'm just not sure that the iPod qualifies as "new".

    "Yet-to-be-successfully-ripped-off-to-PC-platform"? Yes.
    "New"? I don't think so. Not when it was introduced on October 23, 2001. (Wow -- just realizing how long I've had my iPod...!)

    Not a knock on the Onion. Just my 0.02.

    about every issue, there's something printed out and hung up at home or (when i can get away with it) work. they mention macs a lot... i love their infographics, they have a knack for one-liners :)

    That's wonderful! I very well could have written that. Well, except for the fact that I'm not insane.

    Hopefully.
