President-Elect Barack Obama Uses Hide-a-Pod

Back when I created my little Hide-a-Pod site joke, I never would have guessed it would get dragged into presidential politics.

In fact, I had been thinking the phenomenon had just about died down with newer Zune models and traffic to the site tapering off. Then 9to5 Mac brought it back up as an explanation to reports that president-elect Obama was seen with a Zune.

So maybe our next president was just protecting his iPod … but all as part of his plan to bring the country together by carrying both devices.

I often get more laughs out of what others do with Hide-a-Pod than the original joke. Nice job 9to5.
