Well heck, I guess thats funny too in a way.
Anyways, I was this || close to buying an Apple Ipod, then they patented the interface, so since I'm just about the only one left boycotting obvious patent applications and the companies who file them, I'm left out of the Ipod craze. Oh well, what else is new. On the plus side, I've ended my multiyear DVD boycott, especially with players being in the sub $100 range so maybe I can buy music videos instead.
