Dell offers $100 rebate for Dell DJ buyers who send in Apple iPods ‘for recycling’

“Computer maker Dell Inc. offered a limited time $100 rebate to Digital Jukebox music player purchasers who send in an Apple Computer Inc. iPod music player for recycling, the company said Wednesday. Dell’s 15-Gigabyte Digital Jukebox players retail for $199 and have a 20-hour battery, Dell said,” Associated Press reports. “The company did not say when the rebate offer would expire.”

    Jump, that was a wonderful analogy.

  4. They are double the battery life(supposedly) because they are double the size.
