iPod Envy and Subculture

Vern Seward for The Mac Observer describes his iPod envy and the subculture that drives it.

“I know, I know… I had intended to buy one when the prices got to around US$200. The price of a new iPod still isn’t there yet, but there have beenlots of decent refurb models around for well under US$200. In fact, I bought my son one for his birthday; a spiffy 10 gigger. I think he likes it, at least, he says he does. Toby lives in Southern CA so we don’t see each other much and I don’t know for sure if he’s really using it or just saying so to be nice to his old man. If he’s not, he’s really missing the boat; there seems to be a California-esque subculture growing around the iPod that he, and I, are missing out on. I’ve had several experiences recently that will illustrate what I mean:”
