U2? No, not me


nopod.jpgSo Apple has released a new version of the U2 iPod. I don’t get it–I never have. It looks like it got to the Air Jordan party about 20 years late, and all you get for the extra $30 is access to an exclusive U2 video through the iTunes Music Store. Oh, and the autographs of the band members etched into the (now black) back, which will be scratched beyond recognition in a month anyways. (Hey Apple: a pox upon the planned obsolescence you’ve snuck in under the guise of shiny: use brushed metal.)


Update: OK, maybe not technically updating anything, but this is freaking hilarious. (From Good Morning Silicon Valley.)
