Where did I miss the part where Steve Jobs likened himself to a saint?
This sounds more like a bitter, jealous fantasy.

Do the numbers and Apple could be donating around $10 million a quarter over the next year. So lay off!

If Apple had increased the price, then you could go on and beetch.

For the humanitarian saint that Steve tries to show himself as, that's low.

The Gap is doing basically the same thing.

The Gap's Red line costs far more than its other clothes lines. They will give half the cost to charity and half for profit. Which ultimately means they will make the same profit as their regularly priced clothes.

These are publicly traded companies who have great pressure to meet Wall Street expectations. They give to charity but they are not going to risk a decrease in profit.

Not the chair, but the fact that you mentioned his name. I was enjoying a new iPod thread until that fat man came along.

I guess I can see that. Pics of MonkeyBoy StevieB do make me lose my appetite.

sweet, a red ipod. ( glad it doesn't look like all the "girlish" hues of the other colors)

now if they would just come out with a dark green or dark blue, I could finally pick a color.

Ha!

Oh the irony of this post, due to both Wal-Mart and Target being upset over Apple's iTunes video sales. Not so bad to bash them back.

Support industrial hemp: Global Hemp Store

That was the best laugh I've had all day!!!

Seriously, though, this is a great idea. Good promo for Apple, and extra cash for AIDS research. AND we get a red nano. Enough of the pastel colours, already!

Yeah that does look mad canadian! They should make a red one with a white click wheel and a blue button for the americans.

Orange would be interesting. Some people consider orange their favorite color. Blue is my favorite color, and I love the blue the nano is. If the red Nano looks the same as that one above in person, then they'll fly off the shelves.

I was going to buy an 80GB 5.5G and a Shuffle 2.0. But if this rumor is true I might end up buying one of these as well.

Still wish the 80 came in red, though. But not with a black ckick-wheel.

No, iPods don't need protection. It's the Zune that squirts things.

Red looks worse than BROWN?

Nah, sorry, don't think so. But maybe my grandpa might agree with ya, though.
