i live in UK and i duno wot the situation is in the USA but before christmas it would be about 1 in 20 people you would see wearing the supplied headphones, meaning iPod user, now i wud say its about 1 in 4, its mad!.

i don’t like usin the standard ‘phones tho,as it shouts to criminals who are obviously becoming more aware of them and itll be iPods they steal. and now almost everyone knows about them cos theyve been in the news so much here…for good and bad (theyre saying ALL iPods have deffecient batteries)
