Mix: Drexel, Emotional attachment, Godcasting, iTunes flirting

Following in Duke University’s footsteps, Pennsylvania’s Drexel University School of Education will distribute free iPods to incoming students next fall.

The “iPod economy” is unusual because of the “emotional attachment” people feel toward their iPods, says Richard Doherty, research director at the Envisioneering Group, a market research firm in Seaford, NY.

Godcasting” is a new form of podcasting, in which preachers convert their sermons to audio to be heard on portable digital audio players such as the iPod.

Blogger Alexander Payne recounts how he chatted with a girl at a coffee shop with nothing more than their iTunes Library titles via the application’s music sharing feature.

I’ve heard of interesting things done with Photos… I wonder what they have in mind.
