That cannot be good...
for the hard drive
Someone really has some issues, and I'm thinking that its more than just having a few songs erased....
See, kids? This is why it's so important to back up your files!
That's just...sick. Really sick.
Wow, that's a really good knock-off of CNN's page/article style--it had me completely fooled until I noticed the top says "Headlined News" with the extra 'd' compared to "Headline News." Granted it was only about 10 seconds, but I was about 5 seconds away from sending the URL to a friend as a serious item.
On a related note, due to the wonderful skip protection of the iPod, it never skipped once during the attack.
see, and people say that the iPod has no other uses... it's a multi-function tool!
agree... also if you back track so the URI, it leads you to someone's personal website. I was fooled for a bit, till I read your post then examined the evidence.
that is unfathomable
imagine first of all being beating to death by your girlfriend...and then over something as stupid as some mp3's
In case there's any doubt, despite the messages above--
this is not a real story. it's a joke.
kind of funny tho, for the "i could see that actually happen" factor
Wonder how well the iPod stood up to this unique form of abuse, doubtful the Dell MP3 player could have withstood that without turning into a handfull of pieces parts.
Almost reminds me of the old Timex commercials - "Takes a licking, and keeps on ticking..."
... or the Samsonite gorilla commercial.
While other parts of the tech industry are looking for their "killer apps" we can see that the iPod is way ahead once again.
If someone deleted my 3000 err..6803 songs after accusing me I downloaded them illegally I'd most likely do the same thing at the peak of the rage.
the 404 page for most of those links is amusing.
It's amazing how often people get fooled by satire. I used to teach college writing, and several times my students tried to use stories from The Onion as sources for research papers.
Well, Michael Moore has The Onion listed as one of his news sites, so it must be creditable
Well, now that the iPod can be used as a deadly weapon, we must ban it from everywhere... Guns don't kill people, iPods kill people... I guess you'll have to have a license from now on to carry a concealed iPod...
The good thing for this woman, though, is that she can only be tried for murder, not murder and illegal downloading of music...
hmm i wonder how the ipod mini would stand up to such use hehe
That is very sad. May he rest in peace. I imagine that there has been ongoing issues with this couple. This was just the puberal final straw that broke the camels back. Sadly in a beating type of death the victim suffers.
was the iPod okay?
You know, if you're able to read the original story, you should be able to read the subsequent posts where we discuss this being a joke. Once again, for all that missed it, so you don't have to feel sorry for the guy (or the iPod)
this story is a joke
I was wondering why she wanted to borrow my iPod.
i'm an idiot...
hey it really liked like a legit news post... are all headlined news stories false like the onion? i have never head of them before
at least she didnt beat with a nomad jukebox... that would have REALLY hurt
Thank you for the update, it is a relief to know the truth. Although someone loosing there life isn't something to joke about.
