Cry Me an iRiver

Jenna Jameson
Originally uploaded by Oblivia.

Chosun Ilbo reports that Korean OEM manufacturer reigncom (manufacturer of iriver) has enlisted adult entertainment star Jenna Jameson to snare the testosterone set.

Pornography can be an effective fuel in the uptake and advance of new technology (still photography, VCR, the Interweb) and can represent the shortest path to profitablity. This is no news. I find it interesting that they make the connection so explicit with their Personal Media Player (PMP) ads. Go on - use it for porn. We know you're going to anyway.

But the ad is a bit icky. The portability of the PMP has allowed this loser the freedom to watch and be with the rest of the world when really he should be doing his biz in his mom's closet.

And is that a look of utter disdain on Jenna's face? At least they got that part right.
