Clooney and Alamuddin’s four-day wedding celebrations in Venice cost around 10 millions euros according to Elle and Telegraph. I read somewhere that the whole event may have been paid by Amal’s father Ramzi, who’s a retired professor at the American University of Beirut but I doubt it. One thing is for sure, is that Amal is the one making all the headlines and not Clooney and she totally deserves it!
On a last note, I was quite surprised to read that they offered their guests an iPod with a list of their favorite songs as a gift. I didn’t know people still buy iPods these days and Techcrunch agrees that the iPod is dead.

From the techcrunch article you linked to:
“Our old friend, the iPod CLASSIC, is no more. Apple unceremoniously removed the much-beloved media player from its iPod product page, leaving just the shuffle, nano, and touch to carry the iPod standard”
Exactly. They are referring to the iPod CLASSIC that Apple now discontinued. Other models are still displayed and bought at Apple stores.
The age of the iPod is over, whether it’s the classic or touch or whatever.
No doubt, but at least reference the right article when you say the “iPod is dead” (or READ the one you referenced before posting).
