I just found this image in my home directory and thought it was funny – and then I realized I made it. I was going to make a blog post about the whole ipod-bud-earphones-as-status-symbols phenomenon, and how it’s also pretty damn stupid to wear them in public, since the little white bud earphones are also a giant target that says to anyone, including potential thieves, “I have an electronic music device on me worth at least $100.”
So, iPod owners: buy a pair of regular headphones (or maybe the best headphones ever). You won’t be able to sue Apple for going deaf, but at least you won’t get beat up and robbed.
