    Even better:
    In the photo shown, the song playing on i.Beat blaxx is “All Good Things.”

    How can a group of people who can design an mp3 player be smart enough to program something, and yet not realize when saying the name aloud that it can be taken the wrong way?
    I think a whole office just got laid off.

    ” Oops,TrekStor Renames iBeat Blaxx After a Bit of Self-Flagellation…

    Dear Gizmodo, TrekStor is shocked by the way our new MP3 player’s name “TrekStor i.Beat blaxx” is perceived. Of course the word “Beat” is not meant as a verb, but refers to the beats of the music you are listening to. More than 4 years ago, TrekStor introduced the i.Beat MP3 player series that today consists of more than 25 different players – all named individually. “blaxx” was chosen, because the player is designed with an elegant black piano finish. As a reaction to the bad connotation of the name, TrekStor decided to rename the product “TrekStor blaxx” – effective immediately. We sincerely apologize to everybody whom we offended by the initial name of this product and want to emphasize that TrekStor condemns violence and any form of racism.

    Mit freundlichen Gr en,
    Best regards,

    Gil Szmigiel
    Vice President / CTO”
