Thomas Beller of The New York Times has an amusing story of how he dropped his iPod onto the subway tracks and retrieved it himself.

Gizmodo reports that the tiny cube-shaped MobiBlu DAH-1500i digital audio player is now available in a 2GB model for $160.

iPrep Press is now offering a $10 audio walking tour of old Philadelphia that includes a map and photos for iPod use.

Mooky is a new bi-monthly “digital video magazine” that’s now available from iTunes. It covers “recent news, gossip, title tattle, music videos, competitions and more.”

Wow that whole iPod on the subway thing was pretty cool. A well written article. I have one question… his iPod fell out of his coat pocket and then he put it back in his pocket after he picked it up. I suspect that it was a different pocket? How did it stay in while he was going down the stairs? Why didn’t he already know about the hole before he put his iPod in there? That’s more than one question but I’m confused…

It was the way the story was written that made it interesting.

his next column will probably be a “well written” piece on how he tried to make himself some toast one morning, but forgot to plug the toaster in

RE: his next column will probably be a “well written? piece on how he tried to make himself some toast one morning, but forgot to plug the toaster in…

well, in the right hands that could be interesting! Werewolf is right! it’s how the thing is written as much and probably more than the spectacle of the event. You’re just a sour dude sighte.
