Woman kills boyfriend with iPod

“A Memphis woman was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after she bludgeoned her boyfriend to death with an iPod. [...]

Brad Pulaski had died of blunt trauma to the head after being repeatedly bludgeoned with an iPod, a popular MP3 player produced by Apple. [...]

According to law officers, Mathers was hysterical when police arrived and told them that she killed her boyfriend only after he accused her of illegally downloading music and erased about 2,000 of her MP3s. Mathers complained that it took 3 months to build her music collection.”

Editor’s note: Satire.

This satirical article is probably aimed more at the saying that Apple uses so very much: “don’t steal music”, and the iPod was left mostly as an afterthought.

Quote from crl: “Clearly just another scare tactic planted by the RIAA”. LOL! It’s a joke.

If you guys haven’t got it yet, visit the actual page. The joke is that there is an ad for the iPod on the page. The story isn’t funny unless you see that.

Folks, this is satire.  It’s a joke.  It’s a FAKE news article—like the Onion—designed to be funny.
