The iPod is so hot it even got a plug at Sunday night's Academy Awards ceremony from comedian Robin Williams.

Don't worry if Pixar's "The Incredibles" doesn't nab an Oscar, Williams said before announcing the winner for best animated feature, because the producers own "iPod stock." He was referring to the connection between Pixar Animation Studios and iPod maker Apple Computer, the two companies run by Steve Jobs.

As it turned out, "The Incredibles" did win--a "two-fer." Jobs got a plug, too, during the acceptance speech. So it goes in "Sillywood," the convergence of Silicon Valley and Hollywood.
