iPod Makes You A Target?

Ed Steele March 31, 2004 4

I had heard from a friend that iPod owners are the new hot mugging targets, but when I did some research, it became apparent that the media are just looking for something to report. Ars Technica had a link to this Macworld article that pretty handily debunks the myth.
I guess it’s safe for me to finally get one. Even better, now that Winamp recognizes the iPod as a supported device type.
Photo nicked from iPodLounge.com and is unrelated, as Björk has yet to be implicated in any iPod muggings.

    The underworld has been well aware of the tell tale white headphones for some time now!

    Should I feel left out because I’ve never been invited to a flash mob? I don’t, I’m just wondering if I should.
    Funny link, whizzbang.

    Never been to a flashmob, think I got one invite from a guy in work, but it would have involved, well, getting out of bed on a Saturdqay morning, I mean really? what do these people think they are?
