iPod 5G Nano - Great... but that built-in speaker...!

So, I am walking through my local Albertson/Lucky's Supermarket, shopping down my favorite aisle (the cookie aisle, for the uninitiated) and all I hear is Christmas Music.  To be precise, it was "Do They Know It's Christmas?".  I am thinking to myself...  It is January 6, 2010, a full 2 weeks past Christmas... What the hell is Lucky trying to do - keep the Christmas spirit running into January?

And I thought... why not... Most commercial organizations start their Christmas music around early November, well before the Christmas season.

As I am moving down the aisle, I find myself singing to the music and eerily the music system in the grocery market sounded very close and it was moving with me... WTF?

Turns out that the music was emanating from my 5G iPod Nano.  The 5G iPod Nano not only comes with a video camera - that takes so, so videos, but it also has a built in microphone and speaker.

So if the iPod is in my pocket and I accidentally hit the PLAY button - my nether regions transform into a literal dance/disco club.  Never before has my groin sounded so good.

Anyway - thought you would find that little tidbit humorous - Thankfully, there was no one in the aisle with me while the sounds of Christmas Past emerged from my Dockers.
