Mix: Apple’s iBod, XM Audible Store, Video iPod

The woman behind the striped bikini silhouette iPod ad says she was paid $1,500 to be photographed for the campaign, but that she still can’t afford one of the players.

Audible and XM Satellite Radio today launched the XM Audible Store, which offers exclusive XM programming available for individual purchase or download subscription, including “The Bob Edwards Show” and “Opie and Anthony.”

Microsoft and Texas Instruments representatives both recently said that Apple will more than likely introduce a portable video player before the end of January 2006.

“But I’m not bitter or anything”

Course not.  That’s why you were interviewed for an article about how you can’t afford a product for which you helped advertise.  That’s also why the dancing bit is stressed, and how you nanny part time, to you know, help pay the bills.  Since the $1,500 doesn’t help that much.  I mean really (rolls eyes)

Why so hostile?  You know some people have little or no disposable income to put towards buying a $300-$400 portable music player.

Drew, it seems picking on defenseless “babes” is what certain iLoungers get off on. Treat people less than they would their precious iPod, as it seems.
