iPods everywhere

For my sins, this week has involved daily tube travel (the subway for non-brits) which generally isn't a joyous activity.

Hoping to avoid as much of the journey as possible I drowned out the world with new in-earphones and turned on the iPod (to read on a newspaper stall that iPods are making people deaf).

It seems lots of other people have exactly the same idea. However what's interesting is that of all the people with things stuck in their ears, I'd estimate at least 2/3rds of them are using iPods. That's a lot of people. Some of course may be cheating and be using iPods earphones with something else (most people do have their iPods hidden in bags or jackets - though there's quite a few shuffles visible).

Apple really have made an impact in the portable music world, it will be interesting to see if someone manages to knock them from their pedestal.
