\"iPod-style\" player ad

A major Canadian newspaper has published an advertisement offering a free "iPod-style" player with the purchase of any computer system. MDG of Canada is touting the "iPod style personal audio & video player" with a 1.5-inch color display that can play compressed movies. The iPod clone can display e-books, play music, supports synchronized lyric display, offers an internal microphone recording function, and includes digital FM radio.

The ad shows a picture of the player, which looks remarkably similar to Apple's own iPod nano, but does not offer a brand name or storage capacity for the gadget.

    MDG lol

    Just another reason why MDG is crazzzy lame. 5 years ago I remember one of their own staff eventually telling me "Don't get one of our computers our motherboards are s*** and f*** up pretty easily" and then a friend of mine evenutally got one and had nothing but problems. Ad to that a company that has ghetto advertising and now imports korean rip-offs and we now have one EXCELLENT company!
