Yeah.......and the demo will have been kinda...........around a lot (you know what I'm sayin').................


Ok I did it, I smelled my dataport and I am disappointed.....it did not smell of fruit at all, but smelled like my Scalextric cars did when I was a kid, kind of plasticy and electricy at the same time.......pah

People, people! Haven't you realized that the slider is scratch and sniff???? THAT'S where the smell comes from!

And to think iPod owners think we are crazy for just buying a Zen... now we are smelling its holes too!

BTW, at least ONE ABi can report that one of his ZVM's holes smells like pasta... oh boy...

I ignored this post for the longest time because I thought it was insane. But I just now smelled the data port and...wow! Fruity!

I think they clean out all the ports before they ship it out with some smelly cleaner. They probably wash the sack in it too.

But you know, those warning stickers usually say "in the state of California", so if you're not there, you should be safe.

I made some of my co-workers in my office at work smell my Zen's data port and, let me tell you, it's hard to phrase a request like that without looking like a total freakazoid bananahead nutcase. I promised them fruity smells, though, and evidently a promise like that is hard to resist, because they all relented and wanted to know if there was, indeed, a pleasant fruity aroma goin' on in the data port. Hah hah.

It's bizarre, I know. My data port smells like fruit and bubble-gum. And I swear it's not because I've stuck fruit and bubble-gum in the reset hole.
have some citrusy smelling stuff in your pockets? the nintendo ds's game port smells like maple syrup when you take it out the box.

WTF that is weird! I don't think its any kind of cleaner used before they're shipped cause my old Zen Sleek has as strong of a scent as my 4 month old ZV:M...

I still can't believe I actually sniffed the data port. But I can't believe that it actually smells fruity even more.........

YAY fruit... Mine was nice and citrus-y

Like jconsortium I tried to ignore this post... I thought you guys were crazy... But then I gave in... I even got my mom to smell it just to make sure I wasn't imagining it... So then I text everyone I knew who has a ZVM and they're all fruity too

Default who remembers the fruity markers?

It smells ever so faintly like those fruity markers we used to have back in the day. But now I don't know if this is just the power of suggestion or what.

This just makes you wonder why anyone would think of smelling a data port hole in the first place...
