On April 1, Apple is all set to display the world's first advertisement that can be seen from space.

Apple has converted an abandone mineral mine in Australia, whose area is equivalent to eighty football pitches, into an iPod that has been captured by satellite cameras and available on Google Local and Google Earth.

Steve Jobs aquired the location during a game of poker with (the late) Australian publishing and gaming tycoon Kerry Packer.

Speculation is currently rife that the grand unveiling will be coordinated with the launch of a touch screen Video iPod.
