The iPod from the 50’s still beats today’s iPod

Faithful Macenstein reader Alfie P sent in this “What if the iPod came out in the 50’s?” parody ad, and I must say in many ways, it beats today’s model. First, it’s sexy as hell. Let’s just get that out of the way right up front. But take a look at some of the other killer features it boasts that today’s does not: 1 – Built in speaker loud enough to listen to on the beach 2 – User-replaceable battery 3 – Comfortable... Read More

The iPod viewed the same as steroids for runners

This may come as a shock to some of you, but I am not a competitive runner. I’m more of a rhythmic gymnast. So it was news to me to find that a Wisconsin marathon runner was disqualified for listening to her iPod while competing in the Lakefront Marathon last weekend. Apparently by turning on her iPod, 27 year-old Jennifer Goebel violated a USA Track and Field rule which bans electronic devices of any kind during races. Above: A woman I THINK is Jennifer Goebel.

Review: Scosche’s reviveLITE for iPhone/iPod

For years now I have been wanting to charge my iPods and iPhone in dark rooms, but I’ve just been too scared. Well, thanks to Scosche’s reviveLITE, I have been able to take back the night, and can now charge my iPhone with impunity! OK, that’s a little much. I was going to start this review out by making fun of how companies are adding iPod docks to just about anything these days –including night lights – but the reviveLight actually makes a little bit... Read More

Celebrity Mac Chick Sighting: Denise Richards

OK, sure Denise Richards might be a nut bar now, but I hold a special place in my heart (and other parts) for the girl who made both Starship Troopers AND Wild Things not only watchable, but re-watchable. Besides, she’s still hot. Above: Denise Richards and her iPod at the beach. [via Celebslam]  Read More

Pretty sure this dude can take what he wants

I think that little guy would be lucky if his iPod is all that guy took. I’m pretty sure that big guy could take the little fella’s pants, girlfriend, and house if he wanted. Still looking for a “Zune theft” poster… [via weegeebored on Flickr]  Read More
