Meet the iBird - the penguin MP3 player
Decisions, decisions…the new iPod Touch or the iBird? Granted, this may not be such a dilemma for most, but if you’re a penguin fanatic like myself (or a fanatical Linux user), this is serious business. Why? Because the iBird-1000 is actually a pretty cool MP3 player, with features slightly reminiscent of the iPenguin: its beak moves (chirps?) along with your music, and its eyeballs light up and blink. Cute! Plus, the headphone-wearing bird has a built-in speaker, voice recorder, FM tuner and an LED tummy with track info. Take that iPod Touch! But there is a downside: the bow-tied cutie only holds 1GB of music. But when you’re that adorable, who needs a touchscreen, wi-fi capability, and tons of megabytes? Right? Available for $33 USD at China Grabber, but unfortunately you must purchase a minimum of ten players. Why, China Grabber, why?
