iPod vs. The Cassette
A very funny website makes a comparison between the iPod and a venerable music device: The Cassette.
The main advantage of the iPod:
* 960 hours of music against 120 minutes for the cassete
They are equally made of plastic, and have the same size and durability of their covers :-))
But the cassete is the winner in:
* Life span: certainly more than 3 years;
* Resistance: can be dropped without major problems
* Price: "3 for $.99 against $399"
