iPod people attack New York!

“Idea for a sci-fi horror flick: New York is invaded by zombielike robots. They ghost along the sidewalks, oblivious of pedestrians, and have frequent near misses with taxis and cyclists, causing chaos. They carry a secret weapon no bigger than a deck of cards that can render humans invisible. The only sign they are not quite human themselves: two white wires that run from their ears into their clothes, just below the neckline, as distinctive as the bolts in the Frankenstein monster’s neck.

No need to make the movie, of course. They’re already here: the iPod people.”

um yeah…..this really is a dumb story in my opinon.  Why is it even posted on this site?  can’t you just post ‘true’ stories about iPods or likely upcoming events involving the iPod, rather than post this kind of ridiculous stuff?  I mean, this is my favorite iPod related website, but I just don’t want to come here and see such ridiculous articles.  That’s just my opinion though, and everybody has one, so please keep your anger inside.

No complaints, after all, why ask why when you can ask why not?

Jeezus you guys need to lighten the hell up! The catchphrase (or whatever) for iPodlounge is “All Things iPod” - if you can’t handle this go somewhere else. The last time I checked none of us (apart from the writers) are paying anything for this excellent site which, speaking for myself, has provided more crucially useful information, entertainment and inspiration than any other site I’ve ever read. For free! FREE!

Uh, whatever guy…. You’re wrong, I’m not brown-nosing, what would the point be? I’m just suggesting people could be a little more appreciative and less harshly critical

haha.  its funny how people can get in an argument about something so unimportant.  seriously guys, you didn’t HAVE to read the article (and the other ones with “useless news”).  this site is about “All Things iPod”, so the articles posted will be about just that, anything and everything involving the iPod.  For the people that enjoy reading stuff like this article - read it.  If you don’t feel like reading it - don’t click on it.  It’s not that hard.  Stop complaining.

“All things Ipod that are useless” should be the mantra.

Yup, this site is falling apart allowing trash like this to be posted.

Jesse, whats even funnier is how you are “adding” to the arguement. Do you think you are above everyone else that quibble about this so called unimportant issue. If so why do you feel the need to add on to the bickering? You are in the mud just like the rest of us so get off your imaginary high horse.

Pome: I personally don’t appreciate having to filter through junk like this. I hope that the poeple allowing stuff like this are big BOYS and can handle some criticism. nothing wrong with it. The precious news will still be here so don’t feel so threatened that people are complaining. RELAX, New Yorl isn’t really under attack.. LOL

I was at a local Borders store this past weekend, While standing in line to make my purchase, the guy in front of me took his Ipod out of his coat pocket to show his friend. His friend said, and I quote, “what the heck is that?” The look of disappointment that came over the Ipodder’s face was a sight to behold. I laughed my arse off, though somewhat quietly so as not to upset.  Truly a funny moment. I hope that if I ever have a serious lapse and pull my Ipod out to showoff/Impress that I receive the same exact response. “What the heck is that?,” indeed.
