Mix: Free mini, iPod phone, Colgate promo, Diamond shuffle

Apple has launched a new promotion that offers students a free iPod mini with the purchase of a qualifying Mac before September 25, 2005. Alternatively, you can apply the $179 savings towards a higher priced iPod.

A hidden resource file included with iTunes 4.9 reveals several interesting dialog instructions for an “iPod Phone.”

The Colgate Max Fresh “Fresh Tracks for your Playlist” contest offers the chance to win three free downloads from the iTunes Music Store. The instant win game appears to select winners at random.

iLounger “dspiel” has posted photos of an iPod shuffle with 10 small diamonds set (not glued) in its control pad.

I just went today and had my receipt from my Powerbook redated.  As long as you bought it within the past 2 weeks they’ll honor any new promotion.  Student Discount + iPod Rebate + Printer Rebate + Store Credit For Marked Down 30 GB = Happy KBrew

Excellent, I was just about to order a PowerBook! Already have a Mini, but I guess I can sell it and buy some iPod accessories :)

just got a look at the phone preferences for myself.
maybe the phone will fill the gap from the 1GB shuffle price drop?
Perhaps 1-2GB of memory and a colour screen…??

do you still get the discounts on the computer?

I guess the “iPod phone” prefs refer to the future iTunes-enabled Motorola phones, maybe they’ll be able to sync with iTunes somehow, maybe even bluetooth… what do you think?

the student discount isn’t really new. it’s kind of worse than last year’s student deal, when you would get $200 off the purchase of an ipod (but the mini wasn’t included). it’s all with rebates too by the way.

Not sure the Colgate promo is random.  According to the rules:

“Odds of winning an Instant Win prize depend on the day and time of game play.”

I’ve been playing the Colgate promo everyday since this article was posted and I haven’t won yet.  Has anyone won?
