    Where's the rest of the ad? There's a * next to "$100" which means "you may or may not get $100". I want to laugh more and see what kind of stipulations they have. :(

    But yeah, that's really lame and silly.

    Wow, this surprises me since the windows iPod software used to be MusicMatch.

    I guess the Apple/MusicMatch relationship went to the crapper.

    I don't think there was a relationship back then. iTunes predates iPod.

    and now you can get a 20gb 4g iPod for just $30 more than the 20gb Dell music player...

    Dell is desperate...

    More precisely, when the music store opened. MusicMatch was not allowed to decode protected AAC files and could not participate in the music store. When the Windows version of iTunes arrived, there was nothing left to be said.

    doesn't this ad just highlight the popularity of the ipod compared to the dell dj? i actually didn't think they would go through with this.

    Ludicrous, isn't it? Since when does a good old-fashioned Wanted poster have fine print? :rolleyes:

    I think maybe Dell's a wee bit "Desperado."
