Quite simple the most grotesk product I've ever seen!

So when does the product tie-in transfers start? Ya kno, I betcha Mattel could be talked into lending their Hot Wheels™ and Barbie™ brands--for a nominal fee, of course--to the program. Others, like Pokemon or Sailor Moon or whatever in blazes kids play with these days, might follow, too. Might open things up in a big way for the Shuffle penetrating a whole new market segment. Considering how analysts are constantly ragging on the FP's sluggish sales, it certainly couldn't hurt.

With wee little kids the ones who LOVE such nonsensical stick-ons, who ELSE is Tunewear gonna turn to? "Barnie's Greatest Roadhouse Hits" or "Teletubbies Rock ON!" artwork on their stuck-em-up iPod's got possibilities...sick possibilities...but possibilities nonetheless.

Some of these stickers are quite attractive. Also, stickers like these have sort of an unintentional benefit... protection of your iPod shuffle. Granted, it's not a titanium case, but when you throw it in your pants pocket, let your keys abuse the cheap sticker, not your $99 (or more) investment. I'd like to see more designs, as well as an image upload service. I'd jump at the opportunity to advertise iLounge (or whatever it's called now) on my iPod shuffle.

Sorry to nitpick Macobyte, but the shuffle is not an investment, it's a music player. An investment is something that you acquire, expecting it to return you more than the amount of money you paid for it in the first place, or prevent ou from losing it. Like for instance security equipment, or college education (Theorically). But not a music player, no matter how awesome it may be. Sorry, But after seeing the word "investment" associated with the Playstation 2, Aibo, urban SUVs, and now the iPod, I just had to get that out or else I'd explode smile
