iPod Prisons

Quinlan Vos at Boredom Won't Get Me Tonight posts:
Headphones. Yeah. Could a better way of keeping people isolated and insulated by their own consent been devised? I think not. Headphones enable their user to be someplace, but not actually have to have any practical contact or interaction with it. It eliminates any risk of contact with other people, enabling the wearer to be blissfully unaware of their surroundings. They'll also probably destroy your hearing.
Throw those damn iPods in the trash!

Heck yeah! I cannot stand to see it. The subways are full of morons with iPods who don't even look each other in the eye. And what are they listening to? What is it doing for them? How does it define their identity? How does it keep them from being human?
