CNN.com - Teen killed for his iPod, police say - Jul 4, 2005: "Teen killed for his iPod, police say"

Just when you thought the iPod was a good thing, now those who don't have it want it so bad that they will kill for it. Do you think that it is worth die for? If Apple just made the damn things affordable they would make bucks on volume and people would not have to kill for them.

I do not own one, do you?

You must remember that such events are rare.

I do own one, and it is very worthwhile.

it wasnt for an ipod... an ipod happened to be there and was stolen.

It's a shame that this last post was anonymous. Why? INTERESTING point of view! Someone was mugged and an ipod was taken because it was there. Nice thinking dude or dudette!

The white headphones give it away. It's recommended that you get new ones because as soon as people see them, they know you have an ipod and are more likely to mug you for it.

Laura,
who or to whom are your comments directed? Is it the board, the website, or the last post? Please be specific.

If it was the last post by Anonymous, then specify that. I would agree that if someone was to be useful they would not bother posting, so I would conclude from the post the being useful equates to surfing the web.

:-)

I looked at Laura's Blog and came to the conclusion that she is both an idiot and a toddler.

OK children. If we cannot write nice we cannot have a productive exchange of ideas.

I am going to continue to remove offending posts. Yes, I own this so I can do it. Grow up people. If you have constructive criticism then great. If you have a comment, great. If you can only post expletives, then go away.

don't blame apple for such reason.. it was as if someone died while surfing on idiot.com and then you were sued because of that..

Bill said...

Hey, don't get me wrong. Apple finally did something right with the marketing of these things and they are making bucks doing it. People love these things.

For some reason though, society has it that if someone has something you want, you take it. Pretty sucky. Luckily not everyone is programmed with this mentality. Only a select few.

Why are you such a fucking jackass. It is called marketing and making a profit. Apple can't make a profit if they make their iPod's extremely cheap. They would oversell the market and make selling an MP3 Player impossible for anybody, thus sending the portable music player and Online Music Download market on an E-Ticket ride to hell. You would screw over the Music Industry (Which I don't have a problem with) and all future portable music players would have to be extremely cheap, thus making it impossible to make them decent or long-lasting and would be shitty. Fuck You and your dumbass blog. Why don't you do the world a favor and make this blog drop dead and
in the words of Stewie Griffin:

"BURN IN HELL"

Bill said...

It is nice to see Mr. Keith Moon rise from the dead to write such an insightful post.
If it were not for this blog being posted, Keith Moon would still be pushing daisys.

Thank you Keith.

PS: It is a shame that you must hide behind such a great name and drummer. My deepest apologies to the Moon family and The Who.

You know it wasn't that long ago when people got killed for the sneakers they were wearing.

the only reasonable thing to do would be to kill anyone you may suspect of having envious thoughts towards your ipod. that shouldn't be a problem if you also own the highly popular igun or slightly less popular ishank.
