Max found a funny article about the plague of New Yorkers using their iPods to tune out the world. I think the reporter was exaggerating a little bit though. There’s nothing intrinsically magical about an iPod that lets you tune out other people better than with a regular old Walkman. You can just do it for longer. I especially liked this quote from an iPodder:
“It’s a society within itself… You’ve got your biker community, your hip-hop community. And now you’ve got your iPod community. It’s all about those wires.”
Word. I’m so sick of waiting for Australia to get its shipment of In-Ear headphones!
