Suckr spelling goes mainstream

The "we suckr at speling" meme instigated by the launch of Flickr has gone seriously mainstream with the Motorola ROKR. This is Apple and Motorola - mainstream retailers - adopting a very geeky meme. Some might argue that Yahoo's purchase of Flickr was the true watershed moment, but I think actual physical producst for non-geeks is adoption at another level. It seems that the geek will inherit the earth.

(oh, and the iPod Nano looks and sounds like a spoof. I had to double check that this was really a URL to an apple website and that it's not April 1st)

[Update: Techdirt seems to have the good take on the truly ugly iPhone though: iTunes Phone As iLame As iExpected:

Motorola may have licensed the iTunes brand, but Apple's cool didn't come with it.
