Half an iPod

Macrumors reports that an interesting photo has appeared at Target.com. It seems that their web designer has ‘over’ edited a product photo of the ‘iPod in Dock’ to the point where there is no LCD display.

This is the new ‘lower end’ ipod we’ve all been waiting to see.

It holds about 800 songs but each song only plays half way through!

What a ridiculous story. It is an advert for a dock and the IPod has obviosuly just been airbrished out.

What use would a scroll wheel be without an LCD?

What a stupid “News” article…

The first picture is mainly for the “DOCK” anyone with a double digit IQ should be able to understand that….

the second pictures is again displaying the dock and the 3rd for the ipod itself…..

If you’re an amazon customer, you can publish a review :-)  I had one available for about an hour that said I wouldn’t buy one if it was going to suck the LCD off my ipod :0   Took a while for the moderators to find it.  Ok, so I’m sophmoric.

Truly, as has been said before, this really is not news. Your making Slashdot look good.
