OK, I'm a geek, and I do love the Harry Potter audiobooks way too much (I go to sleep with Jim Dale's voice in my iPod every night, puts me out like a baby).
So somebody read my mind. I'm not sure I can buy it now, but why would ANYONE want a cool black U2 iPod, when you can have a customized Harry Potter iPod, with all the audiobooks pre-installed? (it is a lot of work to get them all loaded in, let me tell you)
All right, I'm gushing, but what a terrific marketing idea. I won't buy one right now, tho. Can you guess why? BECAUSE JK Rowling hasn't written all the Harry Potter books yet! I'll hold out for the complete set.
Here's a bit of the promo stuff from the Apple.com web site:
Harry Potter, Exclusively on iTunesEvery spell, every foe, every flavor of Bertie Botts’ Beans contained within the virtual pages of all six Harry Potter audiobooks are now available for download only from the iTunes Music Store. Download each audiobook individually or buy The Complete Harry Potter box set, featuring exclusive extras such as author J.K. Rowling reading from the latest book in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, to a group of young fans at Edinburgh Castle. The box set also comes with a digital booklet containing complete descriptions of each of the six books, plus J.K. Rowling’s biography and more. That’s over 100 hours of audio wizardry, downloaded straight to your Mac or Windows PC, for about $100 less than buying all six audiobook CD-sets from your local book store. (Plus you don't have to import 82 CDs.)
