Free iPods for Chile’s rescued miners

We’ve all been mesmerized by pictures of Chile’s miners being pulled from their collapsed mine over the last 24 hours, but if freedom wasn’t enough reason to be happy, here’s a bonus – a free iPod!

As bizarre as it may sound, AppAdvice is reporting via LeFigaro that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is going to give all 33 miners a free iPod by way of a welcome back to the world after weeks underground. A strange turn of events? You betcha!

No word yet as to which iPod Jobs is offering, but hopefully the miners will get a new iPod touch each – FaceTime could well come in handy in their line of work!

    I guess miners are quite happy to get small presents on their wonderful rescue, but what concerns all those people, including Steve Jobs, who seem to have decided to make kind of a marketing campaign of this event — I think it’s a bit mean, I don’t like such moves.
