ok this had to be said,

this kid Rammstein221

i love how he ripped off someones joke off the page and when somebody caught on he denied it, made up an elaborate story then made an account on engadget and told the person who he stole the joke off to stop stealing his jokes.

get help kid...this isnt healthy

"i love the number of people here who are quoting comments from that page as theirs."

I don`t know who that was referenced to specifically, but if i`m on the list, you should know that it was the other way around, I posted "iDiscriminateagainst: Jewzz" way before that guy did on that page, he copied his comment word for word from mine.

I only read the first three or four comments when I looked at the page, because they didn`t seem to be all to concerned with the name at all.

It`s BRILLIANT marketing.
As Axium said, the name makes it memorable. Seriously, how many mp3 players are on the market today? With a name like that, it`s bound to get someone`s attention. It obviously got the original poster`s attention.

It`s not poor marketing, I found out about it when I probably wouldn`t have taken a second glance.

They are not racists, just idiots.
Probably didnt read it to themselves before they said okay to it. Thought they would be trendy and put an `i` infront and spell it `funky` so it will appeal to younger audiences. HA! Blew up in your face. I hope there is a riot, or atleast a protest XD

"That`s a bit of a long shot there."

Phonetically its exactly the same

no matter how you spell it, it sounds like "I beat blacks" Which is just poor marketing planning
