Mix: Super shuffle, Free iPods, Crib, Banned iPods, Hotness

 DVForge’s Jack Campbell says that the LuxPro Super shuffle was “one of the most clever PR maneuvers” he’s ever seen by a small company, and was never intended to be released.

 In an interesting San Francisco Chronicle article, David Lazarus takes a look at the “free iPod” offers on the web.

 Gizmodo reader Adam Bell has “Pimped” his son’s crib with an iPod loaded with lullabies and a JBL OnStage

 iPods have been banned by a private school in Sydney, Australia because the devices lead to “social isolation.”

 Jim Younkin has posted photos of “Shufflephones 2.0 - New Hotness Edition,” which improves on his original idea with added features.

A week ago I wrote my “David vs Goliath” post about how LuxPro has won no matter what the Apple Lawyers do because they have gained market awareness and consumer awareness that no amount of millions in advertising could ever generate and they they were indeed VERY smart people blatantly ripping off the iPod Shuffle… and I was right!

It was a complete PR stunt to gain publicity and it paid off big time. Oh, and again, I was right. ;)

Wow, I was going to say that people were predicting that it was a hoax and it would give them exposure, but I guess I don’t have to anymore.  (I just hope FallN’s arm is ok after all the back patting he is showering on himself.)

In other news, bullying has been banned because it leads to social isolation and blood loss.
