“Fortunately I was armed with more than my one and a half Krav Maga lessons Ė I was carrying my iPod mini. Just in case you havenít seen one, the mini is not your motherís iPod. The rounded edges and soft plastic chassis that characterized the older generations have given way to one sharp digital lifestyle appliance.

So this guy lunged out and grabbed my shoulder as I was changing songs and, with my bag stolen just last week, I was in no mood to make any concessions of my property to appease him. I immediately took a panicked swipe and made solid contact between the base of my mini and his forehead. He stumbled back, dazed from the blow, and I took this chance to kick him solidly in the stomach and scurry away.”
