[iPod] Video

K and I went iPod window shopping this past weekend. At the store, the video iPods had a DVD rip of Final Fantasy VII. What a highlight of cultural differences. ^_^

America: Copy a DVD (that you own) onto a video player (that you own) for your own personal use? That's a DMCA violation! (Don't get me started on "fair use")
Japan: Download a DVD rip off the Internet and push it onto the display models of the iPods? Sure! We won't even bother taking the release group's credit out of the filename!

Japan is awesome.

Speaking of iPod, this engraving idea was my favorite.

The only thing keeping us from buying it immediately is the certainty that as soon as we do, a newer better cheaper iPod will come out. :-/
