Mix: iPod shuffle warning, SkyPod, HP Tattos, Green Day

Apple’s iPod shuffle product page, which compares the size of the device to a pack of gum, features a rather humorous warning: “Do not eat iPod shuffle.”

Gizmodo has uncovered a new XM Satellite Radio trademark that should raise some eyebrows—”SkyPod.”

Artists and creative types are being invited to show-off their skills by designing HP Tattoos for the iPod. A UK website that sells pre-printed Tattoos, has provided an upload area where budding designers can preview and submit their designs.

Green Day plan to donate all their iTunes royalties they make with their current single, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” to the American Red Cross to help with tsunami relief.

Right—do not eat iPod—but one day we might eat, drink, and breathe the lead, mercury and other toxic stuff IN iPods, because Apple is unwilling to offer a tech recycling program.  That’s according to the Computer Take-Back Campaign, a group that’s protesting outside the Macworld Expo. 

The Campaign has already convinced HP and Dell to offer their customers an easy way to keep old circuit boards out of landfills (and thus out of groundwater).  Apple does it in Europe and Asia, but here in the US they’ve actually fought legislation to enforce computer recycling without offering an alternative. 

I hope iPodlounge will consider covering this issue on the site (especially given the site’s independence from Apple) and that readers will read more about it (http://www.badapple.biz).  I love my iBook and can’t wait to get an iPod, but the company’s response to this issue makes me wince.  Let’s support Apple, but let’s also encourage them to be responsible.

Not only “do not eat iPod shuffle,” but

“Keyboard, iPod mini, dock, hands, AirPort, Bluetooth and PC sold separately.”

On the Mac mini page.
