And a Pocket Full of Porn



So the video Ipod came out last week. I have to give pause and wonder ….”is this a good thing?” I thought the Ipod, just music, was cool. The photo Ipod a little neat but not really practical. Now this video Ipod. I waste enough time as it is on the web looking at silly videos of people making complete fools of themselves. Now I can do it in the company of my friends and family without the hassle of lugging around that huge clunky laptop.

I was in Chicago last month and I was saddened by what I saw. There were a lot of people walking around with Ipods in their ears. I was upset because I feel that whether they realized it or not, they were choosing to not interact with the rest of our society. But I can see the appeal. If you have an Ipod and you are jamming to Ashley Simpson, you can choose to ignore your surroundings. Or even if someone is trying to talk to you on the subway, you can easily pass off as not hearing them, even though you did. Just think of the potential conflicts you could avoid. I saw a guy delivering a pizza with an Ipod. I mean seriously the car stereo is not good enough. I guess he needed to hear that 50cent song all the way to the door.

So what’s going to happen once people start getting the video Ipod? I bet you traffic accidents will skyrocket. Pedestrian and vehicular. Cases of people with strained necks will also increase significantly. Then my mind turns really dark. Do you know how much porn you could put on one of these? I can’t imagine the amount of porn that will accumulate on these things. Guarding our kids from this trash just got 20 times harder. Porn was something that you used to have to go to shady video stores to get. (not speaking from experience) When you left with a video, it was in a brown paper bag because there was still some shame involved. Then the internet came along and the shame ended. You could do this in your own home without anyone knowing it. Now you will be able to do it in public without anyone knowing it. I guess I would rather have people ignoring me on the subway.

Just a sidenote. Appearntly Ipod sales have slowed down significantly. One of the reasons economists site is the fact that there are so many Ipods out there.

"...choosing not to interact with the rest of society..."

People have been doing that since the invention of the Sony Walkman. My favorite is going for a walk on the Rock Island trail and seeing someone walking on the trail listening to their iPod... as if to say, "Screw nature! I've got better stuff to listen to."

The whole I-POD craze is overated in my opinion, the sound
quality and screen quality are very questionable.
