Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Stupid Disclaimer of the Year:
OK, so Apple has the new iPod Shuffle, a low end music player that holds 512 MB worth of songs. Good idea by them, I think. However, this post is not to glorify their new products, but to villify their geniuses in legal and marketing. Check out the following disclaimers on the iPod Shuffle product page:
- Music capacity is based on 4 minutes per song and 128Kbps AAC encoding.
- Do not eat iPod shuffle.
- Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information.
- Some computers require either the optional iPod shuffle Dock or a USB cable extender (sold separately).
See the bold faced one? That's right, folks. Just in case you feel really hungry, Apple is warning you now... you had better find a Snickers or some Doritos, because the iPod Shuffle just isn't edible.
Thank you, Apple, for the helpful advice.
