Rescued Chilean Miners To Get Apple iPods – They Can Jam To Tunes While They Jog

The world has watched as 33 Chilean miners were rescued after spending an incredible 69 days trapped in a mine. The miners have received celebrity status and could be in line for book deals, a movie and have received $10,000 from a local singer turned businessman. It has also been reported that Steve Jobs has given each of the rescued miners Apple iPods.

In a recent article it also stated that:

The events that unfolded in Chile, while traumatic for those who were trapped, has ended with the best possible outcome. All 33 miners have made it safely back to the surface after the nightmare that will surely go down as one of the greatest rescues of all time.

I am sure that these men will want to go jogging and jam to tunes after being trapped in a mine for over 2 months. The one miner who may find the iPod useful was the one who was met by his mistress while his wife stayed home. He will need the iPod to block out the sounds he will be hearing when he gets home. LOL.

Comments welcome.

    I’m sure Chilean miners are the target demographic for Apple marketing. Let’s see, college students, yuppie businessman, geeks, and Chilean miners. Yup, that’s about it.
    Something they can really use, unlike money which has no publicity value for Apple at all.

    Hi Dick,
    It does seem odd, doesn’t it. :-)

    Bet it wasn’t Jobs’ idea. Can’t see him being the slightest bit philanthropic after reading recent articles about his curt e-mails to folk. It’s a strange thing to donate, anyway! Sure it will do them a lot of good.

    Hmm tough one Dave did he or didnt he…id say a publicity scene if I didnt think of his past activities. He’s been about giving people everything they want from the start in the way of great ideas (though costly). Id say give him the credit he’s due and good job to him. System7 was the stablist system i have EVER come across (since p computers were invented) took me a year of TRYING to break it. Windows vista was a month, and windows 7 still blue screens now and again.

    I hope some real estate agents give them homes, and tax officials turn a blind eye for a year.
