The Times Newspaper today reports on the front page (no real news then?) that more and more iPodders are recklessly flashing their trendy white headphones in public. One iPod user was asked if he was using an iPod, "As soon as I told him yes, he pulled a knife out and started waving it at me, saying: 'Well hand it over, then.' I gave it to him and he ran off. He must have known I was wearing an iPod because of the white headphones." Silly arse!
Apple's response? "There are guys who would rather be robbed than change the colour of their headphones. Some users really like the coolness of being seen wearing an iPod".
Who wants to wear the white headphones anyway? They sound crap and they easily get dirty. Even the new in-ear one aren't that good. Get some nice Sony MDR-EX71s like I did. Black cables, brilliant sound, and they're cheap at Amazon.
Thanks to Ben Wade for forwarding this story to me.
