iPod and power: what is the connection?
The iPod has no longer been only a tool for music appreciation and entertaining. It has also become symbol of cultural status for many people. This happened since the first launch of iPod, when local commuters in subways started to notice the new device in the hands of more and more people.
What happens when head of state start displaying their preference for iPod? Recently we saw the news that Bush is proudly using an iPod, having even said what kind of music is inside it ("Beach boys, Beatles").
Now, it is the time of the
vice-president to show his appreciation for the iPod player.
If this wave continues, the next world summit is gonna become just another marketing campaign for the iPod... Congratulations again Apple!
