U2 and ipod

this from atu2.com

NEW @U2 THE POD SQUAD?
October 18, 2004
posted by: m2

ThinkSecret.com, a leading source of Apple-related news and rumors, is reporting that the relationship between Apple and U2 may include a U2-themed iPod. "The U2-edition iPod will feature a distinctive enclosure and will come pre-loaded with all the band's major album releases," TS suggests, and says it may cost about $30 more than a standard iPod. Think Secret's sources say the rumored iPod may be released around the same time that U2 releases How To Dismantle and Atomic Bomb.



so glad i havent bought an ipod yet, totally would want this!

the apple/ipod-U2 link is getting stronger and stronger by the day

*wonders if this will start a whole new round of "U2 are sell outs" arguments.

I've been feigning for an iPod for the longest time and now that there might a U2 edition...my god. (runs for the bathroom)


If anyone really can call U2 sellouts after having been in the biz for as long as they have....and besides this isn't them hawking for a product really, it's still all bout them. Naysayers can bite me.

k-rock radio in NY were giving out "uPod's" when Vertigo first hit the airwaves, which were said to be pre-loaded with every album in u2's cataloge, including HTDAAB... perhaps this is what they're giving out

What is the i-pod exactly. Can you somehow use it in your car? I want to know if anyone won that contest on K-rock, one I was trying to win? If so I guess the prize wasn't given out yet.

I need an i-pod I think. I just wanted to be able to play it without an earphone. Is this possible?

So how much do you think that the new I-Pod would cost? At a $1 per song it would cost:
$10 for Boy (11 if you count Into the Heart)
$11 for October
$10 for War
$ 8 for UABRS
$10 for UF
$4 for Wide Awake
$11 for Joshua Tree
$17 for Rattle & Hum -- $1 for Freedom For my People!!!
$12 for Achtung Baby
$10 for Zooropa
$12 for Pop
$14 for the Best of 1980-1990
$11 for ATYCLB ($12 for the rest of theworld)
$16 for the Best Of 1990-2000
$11 for HTDAAB
-----
The Bill would be an additional $167, pushing the I-Pod in the $470 range. Then again, if they have the royalty charge to 50 cents, then we're talking a more manageable $385.
For me, it would probably be worth it if the physical IPod itself reflected U2ness. If it's a generic with all of the U2 mp3's on it, I can load them myself (I've been a good U2 consumer)

What do you think? How much would you pay for a U2 IPod with some sort of U2 identity and all the studio tracks on it?
How much just for the studio tracks pre-loaded?

they said it will be 30 bucks more than a normal iPod, so in otherwords, U2 is probably giving the songs for about half the price, and Apple is probably cutting some cost from the iPod as well, because its a win for both of them
