“Apple Computer’s iPod mini looks as if it was designed for adolescent girls who like their electronic devices to look like their candy. The new portable MP3 player comes in five shiny new colors: blue, sliver, green, gold and pink. Apple describes the iPod mini as the “ultimate fashion statement”—a line that could have been pulled straight out of Tiger Beat magazine.

If you cut through the layer of teeny-bopper marketing, however, you will find Apple’s (nasdaq: AAPL – news – people ) iPod mini is a decent player that deserves to be marketed as more than a fashion accessory—it works well, it’s easy to use and the simple design is friendly and functional.”
