Esta es la opinión de CmdrTaco acerca del iPod, publicado en Slashdot el día en que se anunció por primera vez el aparato:

The BrownFury writes "At an invitation only event Apple has released their new MP3 player called the iPod. iPod is the size of a deck of cards. 2.4" wide by 4" tall by .78" thick 6.5 ounces. 5 GB HDD, 10 hr battery life, charged via FireWire. Works as a firewire drive as well. Works in conjunctions with iTunes 2. Here are Live updates". No wireless. Less space than a nomad. Lame.

Lame = Cutre, chafa, malo, mal-hecho.
