Good Article although there are lots better video players out there then IPOD's.

But since thats the In thing for people who don't understand technology I'm sure thats why they use it.

Iriver makes a sweet video/mp3 player
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

It just annoys me when I have to hear Ipod this and Ipod that constantly all the time. People don't refer to them as MP3 players they say IPOD.

Blah.

Anyways its a cool article. It just annoyed me that IPOD was in there 500 times it was almost a commerical

So do you get pissed when people say I would like a coke when they refer to soda? :-b
I do hate it aswell when people ask at school do you have an Ipod to any and every kid. If you don't have an Ipod you are a social outcast sometimes even if your mp3 player is better. It still was a interesting read though makes you think of all the technology that is involved with baseball now.

LOL, in the early 80s it was Nikes vs. Kmart shoes, now it's iPods vs. mp3 players...

So I'm a techie nerd and a media communications major.

It was an interesting article.

But I can just imagine an annoying anchor saying Ipod 1 million times and it makes me a little loopy.

As for saying Coke instead of soda I haven't really seen that happen yet thank god.

I like one of the quotes.

The club doesn't buy the iPods for the players. It's a $399 investment for the 60-gigabyte model (the 30-gigabyte version costs $299).


Thats tough man :) Lets see 300 dollars each

Helton Makes 16.6 million a year. Time for Math.

Helton can afford 55,333 Ipods... I understand why they don't provide them for the players :)
