Target and Dell Stop Selling iPods

According to a report by Think Secret, Target and Dell have stopped selling iPods due to a dispute over the new Apple dealer contract. “iPods have been marked for clearance at 1,148 Target stores nationwide, according to eyewitness reports.” Now might be a good time to check with your local Target store for discounted iPods. One employee at Target reports a 15% discount on 10GB iPod (Mac and Windows), dropping the price to $339.99. Dell has removed the iPod from its online catalog.

“It is not known exactly what objections Target and Dell had to the contract, but sources confirm the contract was instrumental in the decision of both companies to abandon, for now, the sale of the iPod. It is not known if either company will settle its contractual differences with Apple and start selling the product again, but based on Target’s decision to clear out all remaining stock of iPods, it’s thought the possibility of such a move is remote.”

Wow.  They still don’t know the first thing about business.  Jobs, it should have been the “Year of Common Sense” instead of the “Year of the Notebook”...

Our local Target gives open items to Goodwill.  I got a 10gb iPod, without case, remote, and software for….$50!  Yes I said $50!  I think it’s the demo unit because there are some songs so it. 

I’m a XP user, and it’s a Mac iPod, so I got a firewire card for $15, reformated with win 1.2.6, and downloaded ephpod.  Now I’m up and running and I’m out only $65.  Even if I get the remote from Apple I’ll be in only about $120.  HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY
