    it is

    pretty nasty. Seeing a grey-blue iPod is just wrong.

    But good for Apple, if the HP Digital Music Player (ooooh catchy name guys) looked as good as Apples then there wouldnt be people trying the HP DMP and then buying the Apple cause it looks cooler.

    BWAHAHAHAHA

    BWA-HA-HA-HA! (snort) HAHAHAHAHA!

    Oh my f'ing gawd. I cannot believe how ugly that is. Wow.

    Man, who would have thought that just a little change of colour could be SO UGLY?

    On the bright side, stupid PC users with no style or taste will probably EAT THIS UP. And that's good. So right on HP.

    Re: God

    The average age is 11, but those 11 year olds are driving Lexuses and drinking only the finest bottled water!

    I already have an iPod, so I really don't care what the HP version looks like. I don't know why anyone would care if they already own one, and if you don't own one, how meaningful is some trash talk from someone who wouldn't even buy the "good" version of the product?

    Me, all I sorta care about is being able to play my iTunes-bought music on some compatible device 5 years from now, since I'd like my digital music to have some shelf-life and not have to burn CDs. If partnering with HP makes that future more realistic, then I'm all for it.

    In fact, if Apple crashes and burns in the digital music arena, and I can still get a compatible device because the standards lived on, I'm all for that too. Oh well, I guess I'm just a consumer, and not a fanboy.

    "God"

    If that were true, and it isn't, the question is what are you doing with a bunch of 11yo?

    I think it's great

    I think this was a great move for both Apple and HP. Apple gets their software featured on, what 20ish % of the PC market. Apple might not make money off of iTMS and it's stratagy is selling iPods, but Apple is going to be in a fight when M$ starts bundling it's brand on PC's. I don't know how they are going to appease their partners. In fact, perhaps that was part of HP's reasoning. Anyways this will be a standards war, WMP against AAC, which btw Real has also adopted, in their own way. Whatever happens, it will be an interesting year to watch :)

    Fiorina is a butt plug

    In case you missed it, she justified the exodus of high tech jobs to India by the lack of educated Americans unwilling to perform skilled work for minimum wage or lower.
    Maybe we should send the s**** to Calcutta to peddle her a** at a fraction of the price instead.
