Moral of the story if you have an iPod? Bring a bigger knife.

(a) The "Rocket's Red Glare" story beneath the iPod story in the link is hilarious

(b) All iPod users need to do is buy a decent pair of headphones and they won't be targeted

(c) makes you feel sorry for iPod wannabees who buy iPod earphones and then get mugged

Introducing the iSwitch (patent pending) A revolutionary device that attaches to your iPods dock connector. If someone attempts to mug you, the iSwitch detects the aggressor and activates the 6in switch blade which deploys from the base of your iPod, you are now much safer from the mugger.

I like what Apple had to say:

Quote:
An Apple spokesman contended that iPod users would "rather be robbed" than suffer the indignity of appearing to use different personal music players.

That Apple rep is an imbecile.

Or maybe people just are. A $4,000 rolex is one thing, but a $250 acryllic slap on the back? Please. What a waste of time. Even petty thieves need to be more ambitious than that.
