Wal-Mart begins selling 20GB ‘Apple iPod from HP’ which is incompatible with Wal-Mart Music Download

Wal-Mart has begun selling the ‘Apple iPod from HP’ 20GB digital music player which is currently listed as “out of stock.” Walmart.com also displays the disclaimer, “Important Note: This player is not compatible with Wal-Mart Music Downloads.”

[UPDATE, 10:12PM: changed “begin to “begun” in first sentence.]


  1. This isn’t exactly on topic, but did you ever wonder why we drive on a parkway, but park on a driveway?

    On another note, what if Dubya wins, or otherwise obtains, this election? After four more miserable years, would the righties run Cheney for president?

  2. I think planes ARE crashing into buildings and there WILL be car bombings in NYC and people will CONTINUE to be kidnapped and beheaded if that moron Dumbya gets awarded the election again by the Supreme Court!

  3. designknob, if only he were just a moron. But he’s a moron whose puppet strings are pulled by the evil geniuses that brought you such bastions of the democratic process as Enron’s rape of California, Halliburton’s no-bid contracts, Neil Bush’s Silverado Savings scandal, the kidnapping of Haiti’s President Aristide, Prescott Bush’s Nazi banking scandal, selling to Saddam the very chemical weapons that were used on the Kurds, the illegal Iran-Contra arms-for-weapons scandals, the backing and subsequent kidnapping of Manuel Noriega, the October surprise, Nixon’s dirty campaign tricks (thanks Mr. Rove), and on and on.

    Oh but wait, that’s still off-topic. Wal-Mart is also selling the 40-GB iPod, and that’s also out of stock.

  4. Good post Ed, I just read that article. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Wal-Mart were to trash their current music store, but then swing a deal with Apple to bundle a Wal-Mart-branded version of iTunes with the HP iPod? Imagine that, most of the profits would still be Apple’s but Wal-Mart would have a music store that is compatible with the iPod, and would still make a few cents per song.
