Breaking News: iPod Touch “P” to be Introduced at Sept. 9th Event


In a startling discovery in my email inbox barely one hour ago, Steve Jobs personally reached out to LonePlacebo detailing the real truth behind the rumors swarming around the much-anticipated September 9th “Rock and Roll” event in San Francisco. Why he singled out LonePlacebo among hundreds of thousands of other well-known news station is beyond my understanding. Here now is the full and original copy of the message from Steve Jobs himself:

(Letter below the break)

Dear LonePlacebo,

How’s it going? Steve Jobs here. Please, please, please don’t be startled at all. It really is me. Settle down now. Just trust my word. You trusted me when you bought that iMac and that iPod Touch. Just listen to what I have to say.

As you may already have heard from the nagging media reports, Apple will indeed host a product demonstration in San Francisco on September 9th. I want you to dispel all the nasty rumors of a “camera” and “microphone” on the next-generation iPod Touch. Sorry to break it to you, but that isn’t true. Let me tell you what will actually be unveiled instead. It’s called the iPod Touch P. That’s right, capital P. You must be wondering right now what the P stands for. The latest iPhone has an “S” as in speed, but what exactly does “P” mean? Potential? That’s weeeaaak. Phantom? Sounds cool, but no. What it really stands for: is POWER. Yes, battery power to be exact. Working day and night during my stay at the hospital, I experienced an epiphany one night that truly opened my eyes. It was un-be-lievable. Fantastic. I saw things that not even Steve Ballmer or Larry Page will see in a gazillion years. I knew my calling from that point on. The people spoke, and I heard. I was determined to answer the calls for a vastly improved battery life that could last longer than an episode of Lost and The Office. People could not spend so much time charging there iPod’s, waiting nervously throughout the two-plus hour marathon that slowly passes. One mother I met cried in my arms as she told me the sad, sad story of her little Billy who could barely play his Peggle under the dimmest backlight. It was excruciating to listen to. But I understood what I needed to do.

Those next couple of months were long and hard (That’s what she said). Apple’s stock plummeted, then rose up again as those stupid “vermin” who call themselves “stock analysts” continually poisoned the public’s mind toward my sacred company, Apple. But I have finally returned, with a big-ass vengeance. If I was a stock analyst, I would upgrade our companies stock rating to,”Sell your house and car, and buy Apple stock ASAP.”

Let me get down to the juicy technical details of the iPod Touch P. First, it is capable of lasting a full-18 hour period. I ain’t kidding, brother. If I was, I’d be fired(again). No, sir, this is not eighteen hours of simple music, with your wifi connection turned off. I’m talking about being able to play through an entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the entire collection of Rocky movies. After all that, you still have at least a tenth remaining of the battery, on average, enough to tweet,”The iPod Touch P rocks, bitches!!!!!!” over a thousand times.

At this point, you must be thinking that with such a godlike battery, this thing must carry at least a 15-pound power source on it or something, right? WRONG again my simple-minded friend. In fact, it is 25% lighter than the iPod Touch 2g! How this was accomplished is a simple engineering miracle and a whole load of kickass luck. Let me say this: This thing is SWEET. Very sweet.

I would love to send you a picture of this beauty of a device, but I need to save it for the big day. For now, best wishes on the site! Spread the word! Viral news is so damn fun!

Hasta luego,

Mr. Jobs

    Is Shigs in jail again?! Is this April 1st?! Did Steve Jobs really use a that’s what she said joke?!

  • …Wow. Really?
    Some people are far too gullible. It is a well-known fact (…well, okay, apparently not) that Steve Jobs does not ever talk directly to the media. He dislikes the way words can get twisted around, etc, etc…

  • sf49lu

    This is not steve jobs. If it is, i am disappointed. Why? cuz I WANT A CAMERA!!!

  • Nah, Condawg, I’m just kidding! While I am gullible, I’m smart enough to acknowledge that Steve would rather sit in a corner and cry, than to single out bloggers and personally contact them.

    However, it is a great read and I can’t wait to see what is actually unveiled in 6 days!

  • Complete BS I say, Steve Jobs woudn’t use a (that’s what she said) joke…..So fake..

  • Johnny

    Can’t wait for my iPod Touch ‘P’ 😉 Lmao!

  • samir

    Nicely done “Jobs”! Haha…Had a good laugh reading it

  • Indeed, a great letter. I just cannot believe that SJ would contact our friend, Lone Placebo all by himself! Wonderful! That just shows Apple’s enthusiasm for their product and services! Whoohoo – that, by the way, is what she said!

  • Steve Jobs

    Dear LonePlacebo,

    I is Steve Jobs. It be true. Do not question why, just believe. Believe in me like people believe in the Jesus. Trust me. One time, I was fighting a Gang$tar (Gang$tar) when he tried to punch my cancer. Luckily I killed him with an ice cream cone I stole from a little girl nearby, and I soon was confronted by his mother, who cried in my arms because her little La Quisha and her brother Tiny couldn’t get their Minigore update because the AppStore Review team was composed of mentally-challenged chimpanzees. It was then that I knew what I had to do. I had epiphany. I saw a group of normal iPod users, like you, who could review things using the toilet. I then set out to work on something amazing: The iReviewToilet. Every time you take a dump, iPod game is sent to your iPod via Super Wi-Fi Bluetooth power. You then review it and when you flush, the toilet goes ‘I can take a dump and review at the same time! Take that AppStore Review Team!’

    With that knowledge I tell you this: There will be no new iPods on 9/9/09, only a kick-ass movie. In fact, we take out all iPods that day from market and only sell iReviewToilets. Dis is revolutionary.

    Trust me.

    Yours forever,
    Stev Jubs.

    P.S. Trust me. It’s me. I knowz it is.

  • HBB

    i thought for a second it could be true then again it’s unlikely. is this a joke. will the person wrote this fake Steve letter get sued by real one when he finds out or what? i wan’t the camera too. ipod touch is iphone without the phone won’t be true if there is no camera on it. and yet ppl still say that ipod touch is a iphone with the phone. how stupid they are.

  • Anonymous

    This “real” letter actually reminds us of a really important feature that we all seem to be forgetting in the excitement of a camera…

    batter life :)

  • This is an attempt to get TMA and LonePlacebo’s blog publicity and to get more views which is a very very sad and a site shouldn’t do this. Very sad.

  • this is as real as the post it self (which both are not real). Anyone could make a fake letter like this.

  • williams

    lmao me too

  • Bra Pedro

    Sweet email… you guys are a-rockin’!!!

  • Rockstar816

    OMG @Steve Jobs, I love you, that letter was funny as hell! XD
    As for the “actual letter”…
    I hope and know it’s not the real Steve Jobs because I really want that camera!

  • Lunyworld

    Can this be anymore fake? Jobs would never open up to the media in this way!

  • ds lite

    ha-ha so fake SJ wouldn’t swear and use a “that’s what she said” joke ha-ha. stupid people there are already cases made with a camera hole ???? dumb dumbs

  • Amazing eh? Can you believe it?
