    Wanna a free ipod?

    This might be considered spam (usually lurk in here), but I seen this
    somewhere and decided to participate and thought maybe you guys might be
    interested.

    http://www.freeipods.com/default.aspx?referer=9578395

    sign up and do a free trial, cancel it and get 5 people to do the same thing
    and you get a free ipod. I did it this morning and the blockbuster thing
    took me five minutes to sign up for it, and then cancel it and I
    qualified...so I think it's neat.

    Like I said, it doesn't cost you anything, and apparantly it's legit:
    http://www.wired.com/news/mac/0,2125,64614,00.html

    so just thought I would pass it along, if not, oh well

    hope everyone has a great day!

    Yep, looks like they posted off the free accounts at
    news.individual.net. You can cancel that account via abuse, but they'll
    be back with more.

    Either you didn't lurk very attentively or you're a liar. Every scam
    like this one gets LARTed.

    There were some articles on the net about how this company hasn't
    given any of the iPods out. They claim it's Apple's fault because they
    have a big backlog on iPods and can't get them any. Who knew.....
