this site is really funy with all the information some parents need and ways to ask for an ipod like cleaning your room or the garage.
This shows how apple is taking the ipod as a first step to try to convince more users to switch to mac and this one focus on teens.

What about different ways for parents to say “No” to your kid when he asks for one.

“A parents job is to give their kids everything they need and very little of what they want”

very nice strat targeting kids. Man Apple gives kids the ammo they need to mount an effective case. You would need to for a gift costing $300 - 500.

The site looks kind of cheap—definitely not something I’d expect from Apple.
