The gang over at iPodStudio found an interesting anti-iPod video at ANTI-IPOD.CO.UK. Here’s a description of the movie: “Children of the Pod is a short 5-minute film based around the cult of the iPod which contains a good message.”
The Anti-iPod website is even more critical of the iPod and its cult of fans:
The tiny and insignificant box of memory chips known unto us as the iPod is warping the minds of its users (otherwise known as iPeople), rendering them incapable of communication and destroying our culture – why talk when you can inject yourself with another dose of musical disharmony through the syringe of the iPod?
Simply so that you can grasp the sort of perverted and implacable minds that we are dealing with here when talking of the iPod producers, take a look at these somewhat disturbing pictures of babies:
Basically- iPods suck! Rise against this cult!
In the film “Children Of The Pod,” the iPods are referred to as ‘Y-Pods‘ to avoid the wrath of the Apple legal team.
Apple Fans React To Children Of The Pod
Both Apple and iPod fans were quick to fire back at the message behind CHildren Of The Pod. Here are some of their comments:
- I don’t know how little of a life you must have to have an anti-iPod site.
- So why the fuss? Do they not want us to listen to music?
- The iPod is a digital audio player and a good-sounding one at that.
How To Watch The Anti-iPod Film, “Children Of The Pod”
Staying true to their hate of the iPod and everything Apple, the short film “Children Of The Pod” was encoded using the not exactly Macintosh friendly video codec, DivX. Duncan at iPodStudio sent us a download link for DivX, so if you only hear the sound, download the codec here (DIVX CODEC).
