iCrap

noun; blending and clipping
A piece of merchandise related to the Apple Apple has taken over the market with their mp3 player known as the iPod. After it became established as the predominant music player of the time, many accessories started coming out, calling themselves iCover, iSpeakers, iStand, iCharger. This fashion started to grow exponentially when absolutely anything related to the iPod had the i put in front of it. This grated the nerves of more than a few people, but nowhere near the levels that it grounded upon those who had never really had an enjoyment of Apple or its products. As such, they probably thought they were being clever when they referred to the iPod (and all its accessories) as iCrap. It is actually a rather catchy name, and so even people who really didn’t have any problems with Apple’s business practices began referring to iPods this way, either if they didn’t own one, or if the one they owned broke or failed to meet expectations in any way.
 
Buyers beware: Don’t buy any more iCrap, or the world is going to be very sorry.
