Mix: Dell DJ, Super Bowl ads, Comedy Central, Nano repairs

Dell has discontinued its Digital Jukebox MP3 player line. Dell will still sell the $99 flash memory-based DJ Ditty.

Google Video has a large collection of Super Bowl XL commercials, including several that are free downloads in iPod video format.

MTV Networks has been surprised that stand-up specials from its Comedy Central channel are outperforming better-known shows like “Laguna Beach” and “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

Apple is continuing to repair damaged iPod nano displays free-of-charge and has instructed its partners to do the same, according to an AppleInsider report.

Did anyone see the Diet Pepsi commercial with Diddy? The Agent is listening to an MP3 player at the end of the commercials and ... oh my God it’s NOT an iPod!

There’s a simple answer to that. Putting a product that’s not yours in a commercial probably requires approval by the company of the product. Pepsi would have needed Apple’s approval to get the iPod in the commercial, and they probably tried to get Apple to pay for a portion of the airtime if they were to use the iPod. Apple wasn’t paying, the iPod wasn’t in the commercial, and Pepsi was left to get white-colored earbuds and another handheld contraption for the actor to hold.

I keep saying “probably” because Coke decided to let Pepsi use Diet Coke for their Jackie Chan commercial. And something tells me that Coke wanted the publicity anyway, so they chose to pay for a bit of the airtime.

It was a Creative Zen Touch.
