iPod and Life

I figured if I was going to email this to Jason Ediger, I might as well just post it here for everyone.

I commuted to Oakland today (for the conference planning committee meeting of the Computer Using Educators), and I’ve been doing a lot of flying these past two years. It was not so long ago that I remember flight attendants struggling to decide whether to say “walkmen” or “CD players” when instructing passengers to turn off all electronics equipment before take off… but apparently this problem is settled now. The attendant on both my am and pm flight said “all electronic devices including iPods.”


PS. No cause for alarm… blogger’s spell check still doesn’t recognize the word iPod. It would prefer “wiped”! Then again, it prefers “welcoming” to “walkman” and “blockers” to “blogger”.
