Why I WON'T be buying an iPod

Why I WON'T be buying an iPod

Yes, shock horror among all those who know me, my musical obsession, and my love of cool tech from Apple.

Bizarrely, I've actually worked out that I have no interest in listening to music on my own while on the move. When I travel, I'm nearly always with someone I could/should be talking to. When I'm at work I can listen to music on the machine there. When I'm at home I've got a hifi in nearly every room.

For me, music is a social thing, and the iPod fundamentally isn't. Much as I love its funky styling, cool functionality, huge storage capacity - I can't justify 350 quid on a posh personal stereo when I don't even use the cassette or CD ones I've got. Kind of sad really.
