07 Sep 05iPod nano Marked With Coolness Expiration Date.

Apple introduced the iPod nano today, a micro-slim flash-based player that raises the “wow” factor bar for all electronic gadgets.

While the technical specifications of the iPod nano are impressive, it is a non-technical feature that is most interesting. Recognizing a growing need among gadget consumers, the company decided to add a coolness expiration date to each iPod nano.

“Now users will know when their iPods are no longer the hottest new item,” said Apple Senior Vice President of the iPod division Jon Rubinstein.

“The date does not necessarily reflect the specific date when a new product superseding the nano will be announced, it’s just the date when your product buzz wears out.”

“This kind of thing will be great for me,” said iPod mini owner and Swarthmore junior Jason Reed. “Now I’ll know when I should switch from carrying my iPod out in the open to putting it in the pocket of my backpack.

“I got a rep to keep up with the ladies,” Reed added, raising his eyebrows and nodding.

“Mmm-hmm. Yep. The lovely ladies of Swarthmore. Boy howdy. Tell you what. Yowza. Yessir.”

Looking around at the dearth of babes around him, Reed let out a sigh and put his iPod mini away.

“Um… well, actually, I just got here. I transfered from Middlebury. But I am hopeful that one day I will have a rep to keep up with the lovely ladies of Swarthmore.

“Have you seen any, by the way? I thought for sure they’d all be hanging out here at the rec center, but I’m not gettin’ any action.”

    “No one asked why don’t Motorola Bluetooth phones and Mac Bluetooth computers sync? ”

    That’s an excellent question. I’m a Siemens man myself. Wait, let me rephrase that . . . .

    It’s been quite the Arthurian week, what with SMUG and Uther Pendragon showing up and the Grail.

    The line that’s always stuck with me is when the scene opens with Bedevere saying:

    “And that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be


    I’ve always wondered what “that” was.

    Finally…we’ve broke the Mega-Post

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 50 bytes) in /home/www/crazyapplerumors/cgi-bin/mt/php/extlib/ezsql/ezsql_mysql.php on line 338

    I think the digging has exhausted it.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Job for Moltz to research, especially as he’ll be bored at the Supreme Court.

  5. Streetrabbit says:

    Whatever he does he has to act quickly. The absence of the spammer flytrap that the Mega-Post was is already starting to have an effect on the overall health of the Internet. It’s only a matter of time before they find their way here.

    Heaven help us all.

  6. Looks like it broke the rest of CARS, too! Where’s Thursday’s post? Oooh, how ’bout some more ‘postrophes?

    Being a lazy git, was rechecking the site after doing some excel files (spit) for the warden and realised we were on the wrong track.
