Well look at it this way:

The American consumer WANTS smaller things. Cell phones, ipods, what have you. SP is simply trying to tap into that phase of the American Consumer.

Consumers are like kids, they have phases. SP is just trying to ride the wave on the "small phase". By marketing the size they are trying to bring attention to the small product, and therefore capture the "small-seeking" market.

It may or may not work, but its worth a shot anyway.

I highly doubt there will be a lawsuit. Unless Ipod copywrited or Trademarked the phrase "Impossibly Small" in the terms of advertising, there would be no problem.

It doesn't matter if it is the smallest. As long as they market it for the small size, the idea of it being the smallest or one of the smallest will be buzzing in the heads os possible consumers.

Even the ads look the same. Product on the right....a bunch of empty space on the left...blank background.

SP actually bought the trademark "impossibly small" from some guy in minnesota (who consequently didnt actually own the copyright anyways), and SP is now using it.

In 5 years SP is going to sue apple, and apple will writher away, its only supporters being a small online community called ipod owners.org (IO). There, dealers like Codman and WolverineFactor make aftermarket products. Steve Jobs will announe that he's retiring from the world of electronics, and take up the life he always wanted- firefighter/EMT/Rock Climber/SCUBA Diver/Sumo wrestler..

Soon after, an ipod conneseur by the name of Zulu will open up his brand new website- TheZuluipod.com.

im done.
