Who Cares About an MP3 Player?

I can’t be bothered to actually write about the iPad; too many incredibly intelligent people have done that already, you can read what they have to say. If you’re looking for something to listen to, Leo Laporte’s MacBreak Weekly 177 had a load of clever folks.

However, I would love you to read this MacRumors thread:

iPoop… iCry. I was so hoping for something more. Great just what the world needs, another freaking MP3 player. Go Steve! Where’s the Newton?! Why oh why would they do this?! It’s so wrong! It’s so stupid! gee! an mp3 player with a HD! how original! kinda reminds me of a JUKEBOX i once knew..

People got pissed off, angry and felt disappointed when Apple first introduced the iPod in 2001. You know, the iPod? That shitty little thing that currently holds the majority market share of MP3 players?
