    I've seen iPOD, iHeater, iThis, and pretty much iEverything. I know and understand the roots of the "i" but now it seems that manufacturers and companies are retailing anything they can with an i prefix added to the name of their product. What a bunch of stupidity iMHO.

    What's the wackiest *iSomething* you have run across?

    Yeah I work in an electronics store, so I get tired of seeing this crap. I dont own anything with an "i" in front of it.

    Well after apple decided to be unique by making the iMac which was back when apples products weren't i****, (except iPod), people decided to copy them to make things look better than they really are.
