New Ad Campaign...

So I recently came across this ad floating around the building. I figured I'd scan it in and post it:



Looks like marketing is trying to emphasize the fact that the hard of hearing can use this iPod and still communicate via sign language. It sure seems like the launch is just around the corner...

The New iPod, Really

So I ran into a couple more people at IL today
talking about this "new" iPod model. Basically they're putting Behind-
the-ear hearing aids in place of the regular headphones, which
interfaces with the iPod output signal. Apparently, one guy said they
might even include a set of microphones on the on the new headset so
that people can actually use it as an actual hearing aid device. Hmm... Response to the hearing loss lawsuits?

From lunch...

I just had lunch with a friend in iPod the other day, and he let loose some very interesting information. Apparently, they're working on some really cool new technology that lets deaf people enjoy iPods too, and that this is going to be ready for release soon. He told me that even though it sounds weird it really does work, and we should to see them real soon!

No MacBook

Despite the rumors that's been going around the internet, I really wouldn't count on seeing the macbook this Tuesday. I'm sure there're a number of them being carried around here, but it just won't happen this tuesday. Later this month or next month maybe.
