    In the ad iLife, PC is seen slipping his iPod into a belt case. Next to the case are a myriad of other devices. Can anyone identify them, and/or their significance in the ad itself (if there is any... :confused: )

    Maybe he's really Batman and he forgot to take his Bat Utility belt off!

    From left to right: A Rio MP3 player (I owned that model actually), an Walkman style FM Radio (mostly a guess, could be something else), and a Beeper (remember those?)

    I think the idea is that PC is lame because he has all of those devices that have become passe and or obsolete (can you even get beeper service anymore?).

    I doubt there's any specific significance. It was probably just intended to show maximum nerdness.

    This would be my interpretation as well. :)

    I have that Rio as well. I think it's the Rio 500! Mine holds 32MB :D

    I thought that was a rio as well... and thanks for the significance factor. I would have to concur. :)

    FYI, my rio (128MB) got a static shock and died. I went upstairs and counted all the money I had in my room (mostly because I was bored and didn't have any music to listen to) and, including a lot of change, I had exactly enough for a 20GB iPod and some celebratory gelato. :D

    Thus was the beginning of my iPod saga.
    Ahhh... the good old days... :eek: :D

    A 32MB card cost ~$50 then.

    I know, back in the "day" that was a decent amount of storage, today it is rather hilarious though. :D :)

    I remember when my 32meg Memory Stick cost £50! Which according to the wonder of Dashboard is $93! For 32meg! :D

    Yeah, I think SNL used to have a running joke about IT professionals where these two were trying to hook up and they were fumbling through their three cell phones and six pagers. I personally hate clipping things to my belt though. :eek: I wear my pager most of the time while I'm at the hospital, though, because there's no convenient way to carry the stupid thing. :(
