Duff-Man says...no, nobody has them yet...Apple made it pretty clear that they were not shipping for a few weeks - like, not until the new U2 album is out....oh yeah!

Well, I think there will be some people going for them, just for the significance of the red and black combination.

While they're not my cup of tea, I do know someone who's getting one & is pretty excited about it... Far be it for me to rain on anyone's parade by calling them "hideous"... You never know, they may be "tragically hip" & we just haven't realized what some people already knew...;-)...lol...

Your ritual abuse of the English language is appalling.

Not words: "urs," "ur," "wats"
Words: yours, your, what's

macnemo said:

Not words: "Wats," "u," "ppl," "ur"
Words: What's, you, people, your.

(Bonus points for using "some of you" or "all of you" in place of "you people.")

Words: "people," "who"

This sentence makes my head explode for so many reasons.

You said, in effect,
"Can people who recieve they are U2 iPod post in this thread."

This is gibberish.

Suggested alternatives:
"Would people who have received their U2 iPods please post in this thread?"
"Please post in this thread if you have received your U2 iPod."

I agree that the U2 ipod looks bad online, but I've thought that about many of apple's products that turn out to be very nice in person. So I'm not passing judgment until I see one in person...

On a slightly bizarre note the U2 iPod does have one major advantage in the UK at least. Crime seems to be moving away from mobile phones (the market is saturated) onto things like iPods. Police in Birmingham have actually advised people to keep them hidden and not to use the white earbuds because they stand out like a 50ft sign saying mug me! I just wish apple had transferred the black colour scheme over to the earbuds as well so you could have used it with a little added security. At least now you can use an iPod and all that it entails (ease of use, good sound etc) without standing out with a target painted on your head.
The other thing with the iPod is while we all love the classic white as kind of an exclusive symbol of our love for apple it is becoming more and more common. People that used them since the first generation right upto the early gen 3 models were part of a club and it made you feel special. Now all and sundry have them in a year or so it will become a cliche. Mac heads will be using other companies players just to stand out! :D
So I don't actually mind the U2 iPod, infact I would go as far as saying I would buy one. The fact we all pay so much attention to what the thing looks like shows how far apple have come but also the increasingly bizarre path they are now taking. Apple use to stand for ease of use, quality and security, being able to think different. Now to a lot of people especially PC users who just by iPods 'because they are the in thing' think apple just stands for fashion/style. Nothing wrong with style exept it goes out of fashion, we don't want another 'return of the clones' problem. It's quite funny really an iPod is the reverse of an apple computer, people always say how long a mac lasts compared to a PC but with iPods people find the need to buy a new one everytime apple changes the design by moving the scroll wheel. I guess apple is now going after a different market with the Pod, one driven only by sales. Apple needs to experiemnt with the iPod in order to keep sales up, BUT WE NEED TO SEE MORE INNOVATION WITH THEIR COMPUTERS LIKE THE NEW IMAC so us dedicated users have something to should about that makes us feel special again. :p

Honestly, right now I am torn between the photo and the u2 iPods. I know the U2 iPod is pretty strande looking, it's different. Something about that makes me tingly inside.Plus the fact that it's a _U2_ iPod...sigh...
But it would be much more practical for me to go ahead with the larger 60 GB Photo iPod, which rocks in its own right. There's just something about limited edition anything that draws some people, so with a device that's so close to people's... hearts...the draw will definately move some to buy.
Anyway, that's my ramblings on the subject.

Think happy thoughts, you'll get out alive.

Apple says you get a free $50 coupon that you can use to buy "The Complete U2" set. But these $50 are included on the price...

Steve Jobs sucks. The Macs are good and beautiful computers (except the iMac G5, which is extremely ugly), but the CEO is an incompetent administrator.
