The iPod is a “multi-faceted transformative device”

“If you thought you liked the iPod because of its looks, think again. It could, according to one academic, be a way of regaining your personal space.

To Dr Michael Bull, portable music players are ‘multi-faceted transformative devices’, a ‘tool whereby users manage space, time and the boundaries around the self.’

Dr. Bull is one of the few academics, possibly the only one, to spend time researching what owners of iPods and other music players do with their gadgets, why they listen to them and what difference they make to their lives.”
