A poster at gadget blog Engadget remarks on the anti-iPod stickers sweeping Tribeca by offering a socioeconomic analysis based on the Chinese-language sign hanging below the sticker:

Funny how the sticker was posted on top of a hiring notice for factory workers for a garment factory. At the current rate that iPods are going (300 bucks) and Chinese factory workers are paid ($0.05 per pair of pants, about 90 pairs of pants an hour, so that's 4.50 an hour), it will take her about 67 hours of work to pay for one of them. Maybe she can get a retropod instead...Man, how great is the Inter-net?
