“Can cough syrup do for jPod what 20 tons of peanuts did for Jericho?

Fans of jPod, however, have ruled out expressing their ire at the CBC by shipping cough syrup to the public broadcaster (in reference to a character on the show who abuses cough syrup). Their smarter suggestions for saving the cancelled show based on the Douglas Coupland novel include good old-fashioned letters and messages to the computer manufacturer Dell, telling it how great its product looked on jPod.” Read more.
