This is a sad world.

If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page for the new iPod Shuffle, you'll find the following disclaimers: Music capacity is based on 4 minutes per song and 128Kbps AAC encoding. Do not eat iPod shuffle. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information. Some computers require either the optional iPod shuffle Dock or a USB cable extender (sold separately). Four minutes per song, check....inedible, check...limited charge cycles, check...dock sold sep--wait one got-danged minute. Did they really feel the need to point out that this fucker is not to be eaten? I mean, yes, it's smaller than a pack of gum, but what assmonkey would look at that comparison and think the thing was chewable?

I attended the SF Macworld conference this week, where the iPod Shuffle was introduced. I asked asked a floor rep about the 'not to be eaten' disclaimer, and he said they were dead serious about it. Also, the entire iPod fam has this thing about limited battery life where you have to just get a new iPod instead of replacing the battery.

Do they really think someone is going to "taste" it because it "looks" as if it may taste like peppermint? We are humans, not sharks. Who is this person that goes around tasting everything?
