Mix: Coolness, Vending machine, New Zealand, Hearing loss

Ken Belson of The New York Times asks if the iPod can keep its cool factor as the device becomes more mainstream.

A Boing Boing reader spotted a vending machine that sells iPod minis and iPod shuffles at the Atlanta Airport.

The iPod shortages in New Zealand will soon be remedied, according to Apple division general manager Steve Ford. “Over the next seven to 10 days we’ll kill off all the shortages we’ve been having,” he says.

Audiologists believe “tens of thousands of young people are causing serious damage to themselves, and are likely to suffer tinnitus and loss of hearing in later life” because of iPods and other audio players.
