iPoo-pooing the iPod

Telegraph | Arts | Why I'm turning a deaf ear to the Pod botherers

I hate iPods. I mean, I really, really hate them. There, I've said it. My feelings towards Apple's oh-so-clever digital music player have left me feeling ostracised and hopelessly out of the loop.

Every time I slip the latest CD into my Walkman (�35), part of me wonders if I'm a freak for thinking that �400 is too much to spend on a portable music player. Am I culturally impoverished for failing to understand why it's essential to have 10,000 songs in my back pocket when I pop out for a pint of milk? Am I the only person who doesn't get over-excited by the sleek, minimalist design (a "touch wheel", how clever)?

Methinks we need to stone the unbeliever.
