President Bush\'s iPod

In brief: Apple is now shipping more than in Monterey, CA, May 2-6 with a special session on scripting XML in InDesign CS2 by Olav Martin Kvern of Adobe Systems.

    Bush has gone liberal, using a device from a company with Al Gore as a board member! Although maybe, as MS would have you believe, its the perfect republican device. Because all those Napster/Dell/MS devices and music stores promote a 'pro-choice' philosophy.

    And did anyone expect his iPod to be filled with Shania Twain garbage and heavy metal from the 80s? ["Yeah, Iron Maiden rulez!", President Bush was quoted.]

    My daughters love Shania. Van's Brown Eye Girl has always been one of my favorites.

    As for Bush, being his age and doing 18 miles with a heart rate in the 160s+, I am impressed. Kerry also keeps in good physical shape.

    Me, I would die if I did what Bush or Kerry does. Politics aside, those guys have high stress jobs and stree ages you fast. Clinton, on the other had, jogged to McDonalds.

    He's got a long way to go to fill that iPod! It's amazing to me how the iPod has become such an ordinary part of life today. I can't believe the number of people (both Mac & Windows users) who own them, and even people who don't but use them in conversation. There are iPod knock-offs and wannabe's but they don't have the iconic status or 'cool factor' that this little box made by Apple seems to have.

    Anybody noticed the scene in Desperate Housewives last night, when Gabrielle and her lover meet in the street while jogging? He's wearing an iPod with armband, she's holding a silver iPod mini in her hand.

    My wife and I did. I own one like he had and my wife owns a pink mini. We got a kick out of it.

    Ok, sad, but true: I noticed the iPods on desperate housewives. Meanwhile, how friggin' hot is Eva Longoria?

    As for Bush, well, I guess I hope he cranks his iPod volume up next time Cheney, Wolfowitz and Pearle start bending his ear about the next country we need to invade.

    I wonder if his playlist includes "Sympathy For The Devil"?

    I saw that too.

    I also noticed on Showtime's "The L Word", that the one character was using a new 15" Powerbook while sitting in bed; a good 10 sec shot of the aluminum back with the glowing white apple.

    Damm Extremem Make Over and Survivor are always covering the laptop logos. Pony up the buck Apple if you want your logo shown.

    Proud to say I missed that, mainly because I don't watch that stuff. Tried watching the first 6 episodes or so, but the only thing that interested me was why that woman killed herself, and what was in the box. I missed an episode, and then completely lost caring (I think it lost me when some woman hauled some unconcious guy in a wheelborrow and dumped him into a woman's flowerbed, just to ruin her flowers. hillarious.)

    It just didn't seem to be anything different than what I'd seen in a dozen other TV shows over the years.

    Then again, I can't believe 83caddy16y admitted he gets Showtime. I got three free months of that from DirecTV, and I think there was a dozen things (at most) that I watched, and half of those were "Well, I never heard of this movie, but how bad could it be? Its on Showtime!" only to find out. Showtime/Starz/HBO/Cinemax all seem to have the same motto: "Come see the movies you missed in the theaters (because they lasted only two days, or never quite made it to the theaters)."
