    It's been reported on a few sites, can't remember where though. One site said the land was won by Jobs in a poker game, but then another site pointed out that a similar structure could be seen there in 1999, so it just sounds like something that LOOKS like an iPod.

    I don't think it's a an iPod! I think it something else. Not one bit apple related! I mean the form factor is wrong, it's too narrow! You would imagine if Steve did something like this he would actually get the scale ratio right!

    That's what the iPod Nano Video is going to look like. Turn it sideways to watch movies so it doesn't screw with the form factor.



    Jesus, that's a good idea.

    I saw this on Digg, but it looks like the story has been buried now since it was debunked as being around in '99.
