♫ It's nine o' clock on a Saturday ♫
♫土曜日の夜9時♫
00:26
♫ The record store's closed for the night ♫
♫レコードストアは閉まっている♫
00:29
♫ So I fire up the old iTunes music store ♫
♫僕はiTunes ミュージックストアを開き♫
00:32
♫ And soon I am feelin' all right ♫
♫すぐにいい気分になる♫
00:36
♫ I know Steve Jobs can find me a melody ♫
♫スティーブ ジョブスは僕にぴったりの曲を探してくれる♫
00:42
♫ With one dollar pricing that rocks ♫
♫1ドルなんて最高だ♫
00:45
♫ I can type in the track and get album names back ♫
♫曲名を入れればアルバムの名前が出てくる♫
00:48
♫ While still in my PJs and socks ♫
♫僕はパジャマとソックスのまま♫
00:52
♫ Sell us a song, you're the music man ♫
♫歌を売ってくれ ミュージックマン♫
00:58
♫ My iPod's still got 10 gigs to go ♫
♫僕のiPodはまだ10ギガも残ってる♫
01:01
♫ Yes, we might prefer more compatibility ♫
♫まあ もっと互換性が良ければいいけどね♫
01:04
♫ But Steve likes to run the whole show ♫
♫でもスティーブは全てを支配したがっている♫
01:07
♫ I heard "Desperate Housewives" was great last night ♫
♫昨夜は”デスパレートな妻たち”が面白かったって♫
01:13
♫ But I had a bad piece of cod ♫
♫僕は腐ったタラを食べて♫
01:16
♫ As I threw up my meal, I thought, "It's no big deal" ♫
♫食事を吐いてしまったが そんなの大したことじゃない♫
01:19
♫ I'll watch it tonight on my 'Pod ♫
♫今夜iPodで見られるから♫
01:23
♫ And now all of the networks are joining in ♫
♫今じゃ全てのネットワークが参加してる♫
01:27
♫ Two bucks a show without ads ♫
♫1エピソード2ドルでコマーシャルなし♫
01:31
♫ It's a business those guys always wanted to try ♫
♫これが彼らがずっとやりたいと思っていたビジネス♫
01:34
♫ But only Steve Jobs had the 'nads ♫
♫でもスティーブ ジョブスだけが勇気があった♫
01:37
♫ They say we're young, don't watch TV ♫
♫最近の若者はテレビを見ない♫
01:42
♫ They say the Internet is all we see ♫
♫インターネットしか見ないって言うけれど♫
01:46
♫ But that's not true; they've got it wrong ♫
♫それは違う 間違ってる♫
01:52
♫ See, all our shows are just two minutes long ♫
♫ほら 僕たちの見るショーはたったの2分♫

02:26
♫ And then, dumb man, copied it to your 'Pod ♫
♫そしてダムマン(おばかさん)君はそれをiPodにコピーする♫

♫弁護士はあなたを犯罪者よばわり♫
02:48
♫ And there'd better not be a next time ♫
♫二度とするなと言う♫
02:52
♫ They've lost their minds at the R-I-A-A ♫
♫RIAAの人は気がおかしくなった♫
02:55
♫ Justice is blind at the R-I-A-A ♫
♫RIAAの正義は盲目♫
02:58
♫ You're depriving the bands ♫

03:01

03:06
♫ CD sales have dropped every year ♫

03:11
♫ They're not greedy, they're just quaking with fear ♫
♫彼らは欲張りな訳じゃない ただ恐怖におびえているのさ♫
03:14
♫ Yes indeedy, what if their end is near ♫
♫そうさ 彼らの終わりが近づいて♫
03:17
♫ And we download all our music ♫
♫僕らが彼らの曲を全部ダウンロードしたら♫
03:20
♫ Yeah, that would piss off the R-I-A-A ♫
♫RIAAはカンカンに怒るだろう♫
03:27
♫ No plastic discs from the R-I-A-A ♫
♫CDとDVDはなくなるだろう♫
03:30
♫ What a way to make friends ♫
♫お客さんと仲良くする素晴らしい方法だ♫
03:35
♫ It's a plan that can't fail ♫
♫失敗しっこない♫
03:38
♫ All your customers off to jail ♫
♫お客はみんな刑務所行き♫
03:40
♫ Who'll be next for the R-I-A-A? ♫
♫次のRIAAの獲物は誰?♫
03:43
♫ What else is vexing the R-I-A-A? ♫
♫他に何がRIAAを怒らせる?♫
03:46
♫ Maybe whistling a tune ♫
♫口笛かな?♫
03:49
♫ Maybe humming along ♫
♫鼻歌かもね?♫
03:51
♫ Maybe mocking 'em in a song ♫
♫それとも風刺の歌かな?♫
03:54

Why you should listen

Which cell phone to choose? What software to buy? Are camera-binoculars a necessity or novelty? As release cycles shorten and ever-shrinking gadgets hit the market with dizzying speed, it's harder and harder to know what's worth the investment. A tireless explorer of everyday technology, David Pogue investigates all the options so we don't have to.

After happily weathering installation nightmares, customer service hiccups, and an overwhelming crush of backups, upgrades and downloads, Pogue reports back with his recommendations via his many columns, TV appearances and how-to books. And he does it all with relatable insight, humor and an unsinkable sense of pun, er, fun. All that, and he sings, too.
