    Nice parity. Did Mr. Red Shorts spin the opposite way intentionally? If he did, kudos.

    Ha you all sound like a bunch of Windows Fanboys whan a new video of Gates crashing a computer at some big show comes out



    The guy has abvously only posted there to get more views of his site.



    It's true it cuts like a knife but that is what we will have to put up with more frquently as apple saturates the mainstreem more often.



    Applaude the guys for making such a quality video, you may not like the content but it is pretty well executed.



    Plus for every one of these there are 10 Letterman jokes or white earbuds on the OC or something that makes Apple "cool"

    I thought the video was amusing. The important thing to remember is that Apple do not have a monopoly of the market. Unlike Windows it's very easy to switch MP3 players. Music from iTMS is different obviously.

    It's a choice to buy music from the iTMS and the fact it only works on iPods is clearly advertised. If they want to switch players they can save all their bought music to CD and convert to MP3. Not too time consuming.
