ipod ignorantes

Oh look! I got an ipod for Christmas (I did actually)

There they are with their buds pushed into their ears nicely advertising the fact for muggers, smug but moronically blank looks on their faces (is that an oxymoron? I dont think so because its apt.) The problem now is that unless you do take your perosnal music system onto the tube (which I dont) then you are subsject to the tinny sound or their music which is so irritating. Sometimes it is so loud that the sound is coming out of the listeners mouth. Any attempt to communicate ones irritation (via looks of contempt, bewilderment, exasperation or pleading let alone verbally communicating) are usually ignored or in some cases met with foul abuse. I am not the only person to find this annoying I know but so far LU have not put any signs up to indicate that its rude in the extreme to subject others to that sound.

Worse still are the pathetic bullies that play music on their telephones external speakers (usually crap rap, why to they call it R&B its nothing of the sort unless it stands for Rubbish and Bollocks). LU needs to install cattle prods or tasers for these people.

"Break glass in case of wankers"

If you agree with me on this just drop LU a line and ask them to at least put signs in trains so that we can at least superciliously point to them when someone is being unecessarily annoying.

The situation is ten times worse on the buses - two or three of these idiots on every bus playing tinny R + B out of stolen mobiles. I can't think of another invention which has so successfully destroyed the quality of public spaces as the mobile telephone. The buses do carry signs descouraging this behaviour - but the most of the filth responsible can't read.

... and even if they could read, they don't care. The idiots have won.

I suppose you could always retaliate by playing Skrewdriver from your own mobile - but why stoop to their level?

Its Apple's fault. I have nothing against Apple. Not a huge amount iPods really. But those cack earphones need to be incinerated. Its not even as though they deliver an amazing soundstage to the owner. Horrific technology that would be perfectly acceptable in 1984 (except they are white not black). All iPod users, purrrrlease do the world a favour an invest in some decent Bose or Shure noise cancelling earphones. Before I pop down to Covent Garden and get my scissors out for a cable snipping session.

With the increase in memory to 32gb for the sportsbook iPhone 3GS everyone now expects the 3rd generation iPod Touch to feature not only 64gb memory upgrade but we might also be looking at other iPhone features such as a built in camera, bet nfl and further improvements in terms of making the 3rd generation iPod Touch an even better and fun gaming and communication platform.
After references to a 3rd generation iPod Touch has been found in the new iPhone OS 3.0 the rumors around a memory upgrade to a 64gb iPod Touch 3rd generation has increased. http://www.enterbet.com Other expected features of the next generation iPod Touch is improved processor speed and internet connection speed.
