iPod turning Japanese, inspiring knock-off tissue ads

iLounge friend and reader Paul Nordstrom August writes from Tokyo, Japan’s Ginza district with this report on the increased Japanese cultural interest in the iPod: “I went by the Apple Store and at 8:00 or 9:00 pm on a Saturday it was packed out. The main floor is about 60 percent iPod. They had one Mac mini on a central stand – it looks fabulous with a 20-inch screen. No iPod shuffles on display, but each staff member had one around their neck… Anyway you may know they hand out tissue packs as adverts in Japan, and I was extremely amused to find this being handed out in Sapporo last week – fantastic!”
