Dominic Mohan has written a general article about iPod culture.

“The iPodís distinctive white headphones are a sign that youíre part of the cult ó owners have been known to acknowledge one another when they spot the trademark earpieces although, in my iBook, thatís taking things a little too far.”

Apparently, we’re all going to be copying David Beckham (English Football(soccer) player) now, as the only reason the article was written was due to him being seen using one.

Beckham’s iPod is gonna be all scratched up like mine.  He keeps it in the original case.

Endorsed by The Sun.  The first really good reason *not* to own an iPod.

Three cheers for those who upgrade from the Apple buds. Too bad we can’t be part of the cult. smile

I wanna know where he brought his iTrip for £20 from. I don’t think it’s that cheap at the Griffin site with p+p.

Anyone…?

Mintcake put in correctly, for those of us in the UK we have to suffer the Sun (otherwise known as the Scum in my household). Out go my white buds and on with my Koss porta pro. As for the reporter he’s an absolute W**ker along with rest of the trash who work (if that’s what they call it!) for the Sun.

Actually, the Sun’s readership wouldn’t know how to switch a computer on never mind use an iPod. Does Moynihan actually know what he’s talking about I think not. He talks crap whilst working for a paper full of crap!
