Detroit Pistons iPod Clone
The Detroit Pistons have begun offering the simply-titled Pistons MP3 Player as part of a charity drive. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Apple's first-generation iPod shuffle, the screenless player has similar controls but substantially different internal mechanics, playing only MP3 and WMA songs. Internal storage is limited to 128MB of flash memory; however, the basketball team promises both a low price and a charitable contribution. Each player costs $25 and makes a donation to the Detroit Medical Center's breast cancer prevention program, and purchasing five of the players obtains a sixth player for free.
