Oprah Gives iPod

Yesterday on Oprah’s “Favorite Things” episode she gave every audience member a brand new 15GB iPod. Oprah described the iPod to the audience as, “This itty-bitty gadget, no bigger than a deck of cards, holds 3,700 songs!”

So I want to know who can get me season tickets to the Oprah show? My friend knew somehow and told me to turn it on. :( So this is why I was having trouble getting my 15 gb? (of course it doesnt help that the Orlando store had 5000 units shipped to them by mistake either) Ah well ‘Im just jealous. But seriously, season tickets? or at least to her christmas giveaway show?

She doesn’t tell the audience when the show will be, she surprises them. Also I don’t think you can get season tickets to a talkshow (hehe); I think Oprah tickets are free.

Yeah, the audience doesn’t know… and a lot of people were trying to guess when Oprah was going to do another show like this, so I think this was one way to throw a curveball to all those people.  I remember her stating once that people emailed her on when they can attend a show where she was giving things away… and she answered that only people who would come for the show would be deserving of such gifts.  As for the Oprah show, you are only allowed to attend a show a given number of times within a certain period of time.

Well thats probablly because they dont want the same people popping up in the audience on tv all the time and being recoginized. i was just kidding above but hey ill admit thats awsome but its just too bad a lot of those people wont give 2 thoughts to the item except to say hey i got a free $400 whatchyamacallit on the oprah show! oh well so is life.one guy look excited and maybe there will be some lucky people who recieve them and wanted one from those people. basically i just hope they are appreciated. its actually smart for apple to do this so outside people who normally wouldnt buy one will enjoy and spread the word.
