iPod professor on iPod clubs

“Sony lost the plot”, said professor Dr. Michael Bull, the world’s leading expert on personal stereos, speaking to new London iPod club, Playlist. “The iPods’ mixture of function and pure technological beauty in an age in which we still get fed-up with impossibly complex technologies makes it iconic,” he said. “Events like Playlist show how impossible it is to categorize people’s listening habits,” he explained.

Uhh, can we stop having stories posted about this idiot? Didn’t everyone agree he was kinda worthless?

I’d like to grab Dr. Bull’s ears for a while and tell him about my own “listening habits”.... I don’t know how many people he has “sampled”, but if it’s just people in the UK, I don’t think that’s particularly fair.  Nor do I think that sampling only college students and people of that age group is fair as well.  It’s impossible to find Dr. Bull on the internet, I’ve tried….
