I do not own an ipod, and no one in my immediate family has one as yet-- we all hate ear buds!
Did you read about the guy who was walking with his ipod on during 40% chance of thunderstorms? It didn't seem stormy at all--so he was listening--when 'out of the blue' lightening found him --all kinds of damage to his head--really. In summer lightening is so unpredictable--we had sunshine and lightening twice last week--very out of nowhere.
I'll wait for the ipod chip implant into the brain.
What's that Sheryl Crow line?: It's not having what you want... it's wanting what you've got.
I know, groan. ;)
I love your blog! Where are you from originally?
Ever since I got my ipod last April I can't part with it! It opens me up to a whole new world of podcasting! There are so many good ones out there! I don't use ear-buds, I use the out-of-ears foam-covered headphones, the ones that have a hook around the ears.
I love love love my iPod. That does not help you...but I am just saying. I have the 30G Video. Did I say I love it?
