HP Diddy iPod

Think getting your iPod colored something other than white is fancy? Wait until you get a look at what may be Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' latest bling-bling item. Images of what is purported to be the hip-hop pied piper's iPod are popping up on the Web. With 120 diamonds encrusting the case, one might think the device is so over the top that it couldn't exist. But this is for a guy who apparently has a $70,000 chinchilla throw. Huh? Exactly.

Combs is supposedly getting the diamond digital player from Hewlett-Packard, which recently introduced a pair of HP-branded iPod clones and is one of the sponsors of MTV's Video Music Awards. Guests to a party put on by Combs also got iPods, sans the diamonds.
