‘ePod’ iPod-lookalike Windows PC case debuts

“For years, Windows PC owners have been able to connect to an iPod. Now they can have a computer that looks like the iconic digital music player. Logisys Computer this week added the ePod Soho case to its lineup of unusual PC shells. The white PC case has several ‘buttons’ resembling those found on the scroll wheel of an Apple Computer iPod, as well as a blue LED light that gives the case a constant backlit glow,” Ina Fried reports for CNET News.

“The ePod is a shell into which individuals or custom PC makers would need to add a processor, motherboard, hard drive and other components,” Fried reports. “The ePod is currently shown on Logisys’s Web site, but it is not yet available through any retailers. A Logisys representative said the company has not had any communications with Apple.”

  1. and furthermore, why is it that every hack company thinks that slapping blue LED’s all over things is good design.

    I suppose though they are marketing this to the same crowd that think putting neon light under your car looks cool too.

  2. Why is it that NOBODY can design cases/computers but Apple? It really isn’t that hard, but still, everyone makes garbage. Sometimes when I see things like this I literally thank God for Apple, or we’d all live in ugly-ville… geez…

  3. It’s for people who think that:

    Reality TV breaks new ground,
    Country music is innovative,
    Large portions are the sign of a good meal,
    Leno is funnier than Letterman.

    In short…it’s for the tasteless majority. This machine will do well.
