see, you got my hopes up - I've already seen the video for redesigning the box (and loved it), and thought that the creator made a second video about the ipod itself.

If you're in the mood for a funny one, google "ipod flea"

And apparently the video was actually made my MS, according to this:http://www.ipodobserver.com/story/25957

Yeah. I've read several reports saying that Microsoft made the video to demonstrate the major differences between their packaging and everyone else's way (read: the correct way). I do wonder, though, how it got onto the internet and how they feel about it being out there.

It's also a lot of fun to read the comments, and to see that some people will launch a MS vs. Apple flame war no matter the original subject.

I have to say that I do like Apples packaging techniques, Microsoft's are just too busy, it's like an all out assault on your optic nerves sometimes.
