    I think it's overkill. I see a million riders a day on the subway with their white headphones. iPod doesn't need to poster themselves in that environment. If they want more sales, they should consider lowering their prices!

    Funny, I had the same "they're preaching to the converted"-thought about it, after hearing friends describe the morning commutes white headphone mafia. I might get an iPod if the price was right, I'd prefer a mini one as I subscribe to the theory that mp3 players should be smaller than any tapes, CD's or Minisdiscs....I'm happy with what I've got though, and It's got black headphones. If I did get an iPod, the first thing I'd change are them headphones.

    I have a better mp3 player that is cheaper. iPods look great, are sexy and sleek, but it can't do as much as I want it to do, like play ogg vorbis.

    This plastering is just overkill, invading all my space with ads will not make me think kindly of your "cool" product.

    Although I think this was better than the ordinary greyish stone-color...

    ah, but that subway has white tiles normally. Very posh.
