    Someone really has some issues, and I'm thinking that its more than just having a few songs erased....

    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. :eek:

    On a related note, due to the wonderful skip protection of the iPod, it never skipped once during the attack.

    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.

    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 :D

    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. :D

    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 :rolleyes:

    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...

    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.

    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

    Thank you :)
