    Checked the Hot News section of the apple site this morning, and found the NY Times story listed (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/02/15/fashion/15IPOD.html?8hpib) to be very odd. It basically says that iPods close people off from their environments and community, with the implication that this is a bad thing. Why would Apple consider this to be Hot News - "Hey everyone, our products are contributing in a small way to the breakdown of urban society!"

    Unless they think that's a selling feature?

    Cheers, Paul

    That article is so ridiculous....ever since Sony introduced the first walkman, people have been carrying some sort of device to listen to music. This iPod and other mp3 players just make it a bit easier to use and give you a larger selection of music to listen to.....

    Bleh! That so frigin inane - and I agree, why would Apple link such a story? :confused:

    They linked to the story because they don't want you to use their products! They want to die as they have been for years now... they're compulsive innovators but really want to be put to death.

    (I'm kidding)

    Answer: Someone is caffeine deprived over there. Someone probably wandered into their office in the morning, did a google search on iPod, clicked on new, saw a new article on the iPod, had a brain fart and didn't read it first. Remember people....caffeine before anything else in the morning. :)

    Actually just read the article. Its not really Apple bashing its just noticing a trend in NYC, its not Apple's fault people like the iPod.
