iPod Etiquette

The number one reason for carrying my iPod is not to listen to my favorite music — but to have it ready to turn on so I can block out the mostly obnoxious music from people who insist on blasting their music in what is often a very crowded commuter train.

Different Prices for iTunes Based on User Country

With that in mind, I’m going to sign up, even though I already catalogued my book collection earlier this summer using Intelliscanner. Perhaps now it will be easier to find a few more people in my neck of world […]
