So that is why there is a six week minimum wait for an ipod mini. MTV bought them.

Not only THAT, but MTV would make more points with its viewers if they were doing some sort of iPod giveaway to their viewers in honor of the Awards; NOT to the artists that we viewers already spend our money on and who can easily afford to buy their own iPod and music toys!

Don’t be a suck.  Get a job and buy your own.

As much as we would all like to slag these stars off, we’re all just jealous underneath smile Well I am anyway…

Kirsten Dunst wearing only her iPod mini strapped onto her thigh with the workout case would be pretty nice…

can’t these people go buy their own ipods?  persons in a position to buy anything they want all too often get gifts handed to them for free.

i agree wtih truth teller, wtf.. these people would buy 100,000 or any of the items in the gift basket, and probably already have owned and discarded them all, twice…

want to give them somthing nice? take them out to like the most ridiculous dinner you can think of. because no matter how rich you are.. you still have to eat. let them eat somewhere creative.. on you!

To:  “jrose eats it”
FYI, You’re right….I don’t work, but don’t have to, and could buy iPods (and already have) for my friends that can’t afford it. My point is that it would be nice to give those who can’t afford one a chance to get one thru a contest, instead of dumping them freely on people who could buy as many as they want!  ‘Nuf said!

This page references the iPodlounge blurb and has another approach to the gift bags at award shows.

I need to get famous for the freebies.

Maybe I can get an Uber Aibo / Ipod by the time I do a movie or a horrible Music CD.

That’s ok, I’ll just keep stealing all their music. Bastards.

Anyone else think it’s a little odd that MTV gives away iPods and uses Macs on every Real World/Road Rules episode, yet their site and magazine cds are not Mac-compatible? I know that’s a subject change, but I find it odd.

If MTV have any of those gift bags left over after the awards I will quite happily have one.
