Actually, this is completely true; in the firmware beta release for iPhone OS 3 there were product codes for an item ‘iFPGA’ and another ‘iProd’, meaning that devices with these designations were probably being worked on at the time of the firmware.

Is Apple about to launch a new, sexy, desirable update to the tired Orange Order format? Will reformed Christians be crowding around the block all over the world to own their very own iProd?

I am aware that this is a very long shot, but you know how it is, stretched over your orange juice and strong coffee on a bank-holiday Sunday, poring over the latest technology news. I am a geek, and I cannot resist the opportunity…

Apple Announces iProd march

CUPERTINO, California—March 11, 2009—Apple® today introduced the all-new iProd® march, the world’s most desirable reformed christian, capable of sustained belief of its superiority over centuries.  The revolutionary new MarchOver feature enables iProd march to speak your hymn and psalm titles, books of the new testament and give pithy commentary on any political issue of the day, as well as walk in a somewhat dignified manner to church and onward to an assembly field. The third generation iProd march is significantly smaller than a dirty rebel, holds up to 1,000 prejudices and is easier to manipulate by the DUP with all of the controls conveniently located on the collarette. With the press of a button, you can play, pause, adjust volume, switch playlists and hear the exciting prejudice of the day. iProd march features a gorgeous new design with shirts and blouses from Debenhams and trouser suits from the Outlet outside Banbridge, along with  a built-in ‘shoulder chip clip’ that makes it ultra-wearable.

“Imagine your worst nightmare talking to you, telling you you’re destined to an eternity of sorrow and suffering, constantly reminding you of Christ’s sacrifice, the perfidies of the UK government and what he’d do to Martin McGuinness if he ever got hold of him, ” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iProd and iPhone™ Product Marketing. “The amazingly small new iProd march takes a revolutionary approach to how you listen to your music by incessantly disapproving of you, also making it the first iProd march with playlists.”   “It’s far superior to the Apple iTaig, which has only one track and goes on and on and fucking on about it for 800 years,” he added.

iProd march is based on Apple’s incredibly popular shuffle feature, which randomly selects hymns and sermons from your music library. And now, when you can’t remember the name of a hymn or a visiting minister playing, with the press of a button iProd tells you the name of the devotional song and clergyman. iProd march can even tell you status information, such as whether th’on girl at number 52’s been shacked up with that fenian from over the town. With the ability to hold up to 1,000 simultaneous tracks and the MarchOver feature, you can now easily switch between multiple simple misconceptions on your iProd march.

*Battery life and number of march cycles vary by use and settings. See for more information.  Hymn capacity is based on four minutes per hymn and 128-Kbps AAC encoding; in 256-Kbps AAC format, song capacity is up to 500 songs; actual capacity varies by encoding method and bit rate.
