Mix: iSlang, Shuffle woes, PodShop, Spider-Man 3

Leander Kahney of Wired News has rounded up several iPod-related slang terms such as iPizzle, iPodyssey, Podestrian, iPodolatry, iPlode, and Pod snob.

PC World notes the ongoing problems iPod shuffle owners have been having since last year. “A single topic on Apple’s iPod Shuffle support forum has garnered more than 36,000 visits since late October, according to statistics posted on the forum index page. Dubbed ‘Green and Orange flashing lights,’ the thread stretches on for more than 550 posts.”

PodShop has launched a complete revamp of the company’s website, and announced a special sale price on iDrops, its cleaning and scratch-removing product for iPods. The iDrops are available for $11.95 until July 4th.

The first official Spider-Man 3 teaser trailer has been posted online. It is available in iPod video format, as well as small, medium, large, and HD QuickTime video sizes.

So when a Shuffle’s LED gets all neurotic and starts acting like Christmas tree lights, it’s time to bury the sucker?  Gee, that’s too bad…and right when it seemed like this symptom was giving hope that there was actually a legit reason for this thing’s existence. But then again, nonsensical flashing lights always do it for me.

So Rootkit Sony is busy with another installment of the Webbed Wonder (so it takes me several hours to get around to get around to the next topic, what with my attention span of a gnat)...I suppose given their power they’ll get you into THEIR web sooner or later no matter how hard one tries (never to forgive, never to forget...seems so hard for anyone to do when so few control SO MUCH—media content, that is).

Speaking of media control…I see that EMI and Warner Music have gone into the next installment of their kissie-hissy corporate cat fight over who takes over who; considering how the RIAA gets so much “love” around these parts, I wonder if will this get any play here, when the fewer are trying to become even fewer still.

Well, THAT trailer does look pretty good.  It doesn’t show the biggest new addition to the movie though, which is the BIGGEST also dissapointment of all.

Topher Grace to play the roll of Eddie Brock a.k.a. Venom.

That is just SOOOOO FREAKIN’ WRONG!!!!!  I doubt I’ll be seeing this movie.  They haven’t showed him yet, but I can be pretty certain that Eric (That 70’s Show) is going to make a terrible, TERRIBLE Eddie Brock.

Sorry, my fault.  Just saw it and it’s awesome…

Actually they did show Topher Grace as Eddie Brock very briefly after Spiderman rips the Venom costume off.  He is shown looking up and saying, “Parker?”
