58 Goofy MP3 Players and Silly Cell Phones

Gadgets to Cheer Up Steve Jobs

— January 15, 2009 — Pop Culture
Steve Jobs needs cheering up. So, to help him feel better, here’s a cluster of a bunch of MP3 players and cell phones that have come on the market with the sole purpose of “killing” the iconic iPod and iPhone.

Jobs' health is “more complex” than he first thought, according to a memo, but he says he will return to work in June. His health has been the fodder for immense speculation for months, as he continued to lose weight. His gaunt appearance even led to internet rumors that he had died.

If Steve Jobs scrolls through this cluster, he’s bound to feel better.
