Where's my Ipod?

The release of Apple’s new pencil inspired Ipod, which will be able to hold up 1,000 songs and has speakers, headphones and a camera and will be no larger than your average pencil, is another step forward for Apple in advancing the ever increasing technological music industry. However is this really a good thing, no doubt about it, it is very exciting, but what’s the point exactly? At the beginning of the semester Luke talked about mobile technology and that it’s ever decreasing size might one day see us with implanted cell phone chips that is if we as the users wanted to. After a quick discussion during the lecture most people said they would decline because after all isn’t having a cell phone or an Ipod all about showing off? As vain as that sounds most people want everyone else to know they are with the times and well if you can’t really see it wants the point? Besides even though the new pencil shaped “Nano Ipod “ is another step in advancing how we listen to digital music, it is simply that. It will still be like your regular or mini ipod in the fact that in entitles you to download music, so why then should people buy this new Nano Ipod? Because it has a camera, well so do most cell phones and lets face it most of us can’t live without our cell phones!

I remember something coming up in a lecture or a tut about how if we have a cell phone implanted in us how can we tell crazy people from the insanely rich? Is that person talking to themself actually using their imbedded cell phone. I agree it's all about showing off and would you really want to be confused with a crazy person?

the insanely rich are some of the craziest people on the planet. so it wouldnt matter. think of donald trump and his hair do, of paris hilton and her shoes, of micky rourke and his plastic surgery, of courteny love and her fat lips and drug problems. etc.
