  1. Old farts … LISTEN UP !!!

    My two daughters, 19 and 22, have to dress up everything they own with some image of their latest heartthrob, girlfriend, boyfriend, dog or cat. They buy those silly dresses (or more correctly called vanity covers) for their cell phones. I’d bet my ass, such as it is, that they will be dressing their ipods with tattoos as soon as they become aware of it.

    iPod tattoos, much like trix, are for kids.

    Does anyone remember the way the Powerbook 1400 was marketed? It came with this clear removable cover under which the owner could customize the look of the powerbook. I thought it was dumb, then, but my kid loved it when I gave her the powerbook with pictures of her friends plastered all over it.

    oh POO to you old farts …

  2. The tattoos are a nice addition to the ever increasing list of iPod accessories. More ways to customize an iPod the better. A plain white iPod is starting to become exactly that, plain. Add a little color and it suddenly has some personality and individuality. Think about all the things you can customize on your computer, phone, car, etc. to give it a distinct look, and you’ll understand why this tattoo idea is not a bad idea. Granted, it may not appeal to a lot of people, but it’s not as bad as some of you think it is. The iPod mini would not have done nearly as well as it did if it came in only one color. This just gives consumers more options, and that’s not a bad thing.
