Meat the New iPod
« on: January 02, 2006, 08:15:00 am »
iMeat; a new type of iPod that doesn't do much else apart from be a lump of mysterious meat has been found in Hawaii.

Rachel Cambra claims that when her son opened his Apple iPod for Christmas, the device was nowhere to be found. Instead, she claims, the device was replaced by some kind of mystery meat which was incedently sealed. One can only wonder what was going on in the package assembly section...

Let me guess... Now she is going to sue Apple.

I don't know who is to blame for this, but this smells pretty fishy. Most likely, someone with access to a packaging machine has a brand new video iPod. Hmmm... where can you buy meat and re-package opened items... and where did this woman buy this iPod? :urecrazy:fou2.gif

I'm not gonna tell you what I think about this! :Pblah.gif

Honestly though, front page news? This should just have been put in the spam folder...

uh what this was posted in the news front page? Err dont post things like that on news page, news are only for staff projects and non staff calc rpgs and programming tools :/

try to be careful when posting because this news appeared in ti-news conglomerate now :|neutral.gif
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

yes, ti84silver was kind enough to post it on the front page news...

Hmm, maybe I should have posted something about my Pokemon game beta as a news item...

Okay... I think a good lesson has been learned today.

So, lets close this topic and move on before anybody gets hurt!
