Actually... iDo!

Thanks to ((iLounge)) for the heads up on the ((iDon't)) website that calls on...
all free thinkers, contrarians, and rise up against the iTatorship, resist the monotony of white earbuds and reject the oppressive forces of cultural conformity. Now is the time to break free from restrictive formats and a single source for music. Its time for choice, for freedom, for self expression—and for independent spirits to stand up and say ‘iDon’t’. You don’t need to follow. There is now an alternative.
...and what, prey tell, is this alternative? An mp3 player from SanDisk. Woo Hoo!!! Seems like someone has sourgrapes at being 2nd and is trying to drum up business by slagging off their target market.

The thing is... iDon't like to be called a sheep or a conformist because I rock an iPod (or three)! I have had an iPod since 2003 (2nd gen, 10gb) and really love it. I am a Mac user so why shouldn't I support Apple.

Sure... iPods are trendy and there may be better spec'd mp3 players out there... but I'm happy with what I have - I like vertical integration and sweet design. Maybe that makes me an iPuppet..? iDon't care :: when it comes to the iPod - iDo!!!

What annoys me about that campaign is that they are dressing it up in anti-corporation sloganism. Either you are anti-cor or you aren't, and using the sloganism to sell your product proves that you aren't in my books. Sheesh!! Do they really think that we'll read that and not catch the drooling irony?

*shakes head* Bless me, what do they teach them in these schools?
