iPods must be the hot item now. Last week I was walking out of Tech to get to work, and I saw no less than three white earbud sets before getting to Sheridan Road (about 150 feet maybe?). And before I got to work, I saw four more people with bright white cords extending to their ears. 7 iPods in 10 minutes! (And yes, my count is probably skewed -- the guy I was walking behind had on a hoodie, so I couldn't see what was in his ears).
I saw another batch of iPod bearers today. One was in the cafeteria, getting some salad. I think the funniest thing is that, while all they can hear is their pirated and very illegally downloaded songs, all I can hear is "MUG ME! I HAVE AN IPOD!"
