I will also strongly consider adding
a little 'i' to the front of my name

OK, it seems that Apple made $1 billion in profit in fiscal 2005. Just to put that into perspective, that's more than a million, although still slightly shy of a kajillion. Regardless, it's what economists tend to refer to as a "buttload" of money. And yet, they somehow have not seen their way into sending me a free iPod. Can anyone tell me why that is?

In the interest of moving the process along, I'd like to remind Apple that it would do their company a lot more good if people were to spot me grooving to one of their hip machines than to the 5-year-old Sony Discman I'm currently employing for my portable music needs. But if they need more incentive, I promise once I receive my free iPod I will post the banner ad of their choice on this very blog, and keep it there until I die or the blog is acquired in a hostile corporate takeover, whichever comes first.

Meanwhile, I will continue to work on Plan B, which is to buy one. I just have to convince my wife it's worth going two weeks without groceries first.

I still have a waterproof Walkman. *sigh* It's Cassette player doesn't work *sigh*

Can I have your discman when Apple gives you the Free Ipod?

By the time I get an Ipod, Apple will be downloading music to a chip embedded in your spinal chord the Apple I-Nerve.

iPod? What do you want one of those for?

I am cd based...and until I can figure out copying on the computer I am a little stuck....and that is before I get an mp3 player of some sort.

Oh well, c'est la vie.
