    How do you ipod users keep your earphones from getting tangled in your pocket? Is there any special way to wrap them around the ipod, or any special sleeve that prevents tangling?

    Thanks

    Never stop listening to your iPod.

    You spent how many hundred dollars on it? Would you have even thought about leaving your headphones and iPod neglected in your pocket as you shelled out for that little beauty? ;)

    ...in all seriousness, headphone cables are the devil. I wrap them around a few fingers, then start untangling them a few hours early.

    Considering the cord management built into the Powerbook AC adapter, I'm surprised Apple hasn't done something about the iPod's headphone cord.
