iPod-Jacked

Rick and Roll writes "In a story on Wired, entitled Feel Free to Jack Into My iPod, an iPod owner shares experiences he has had with other iPod owners, namely the plugging of his headphones into a stranger's jack. It began when a woman in her 30's walked up to him while he was on a walk, unplugged her headphone jack from her iPod, and motioned for him to plug his in. They then listened to each other's music for about 30 seconds. He has then shared with about a dozen iPod listeners, with most of the strangers reciprocating. According to the article, the practice has also cropped up in other communities. Listeners acquire tastes for different kinds of music, just like on internet/LAN file sharing networks. An interesting read."

Commercial? (5, Insightful)

PurdueGraphicsMan (722107) | more than 10 years ago | (#7531481)

"She walked right up to me and got within my comfort field," Crandall stammered. "I was taken aback. She pulled out the earbuds on her iPod and indicated the jack with her eyes."

Warily unplugging his own earbuds, Crandall gingerly plugged them into the woman's iPod, and was greeted by a rush of techno.

"We listened for about 30 seconds," Crandall said. "No words were exchanged. We nodded and walked off."

Why do I get the feeling that this would make a great Apple commercial? I could see them playing this out and it still fitting into the clean and slick Apple marketing image.

The only problem is that Apple marketing would probably see this as a breach of their TOS, and wouldn't want to encourage rampant music sharing between Apple customers.

To ph34r homosexuality so badly, you must have latent homomsexual tendencies. maybe not so latent homotendencies. you use a mac at home in your pink pajamas and therefore link mac use to your own homosexuality which you fear because getting slammed in the ass reminds you of when your uncle "slept" over when you were a wee lad of six years. newsflash: MAC USERS ARE NOT TEH GHEY. Some are, some aren't. Some are republicas, some are democrats. But not all mac users are gay merely because you are. All gay bashers are gay in their hearts, but afraid to admit that to themselves.

It also shows that iPod's audience is more niche (or considers itself so) than for, say, walkman...it's not like plugging in headphones is any new technical trick, but you didn't see this w/ Sony walkman so much.

On the other hand, it might be niche, but a big enough audience that you're likely to see other people with one...

Speaking of Bluetooth, I was going home from work today, and for the fun of it I kept my phone searching for other devices, in the 10 minute walk I Found 3 PCs, one PocketPC and 2 Inkjet printers. One PC and the PocketPC seemed to accept my filetransfer of a picture. So did one Inkjet printer, I don't know if it printed anything but it got 4 pictures from the street printed out. All this time i was walking outside and I guess that the PCs and printers was inside the shops and small offices in that neighbourhood.
When I got to the sub, I found 4 other phones and a Ipaq, one of them wanted the files from my phone. but all of the sudden, the trip home was a bit more fun. :)

This kind of rampant theft of music must stop. Artists and producers can't afford to have thieves and pirates steal their hard work.

What if this "journalist" stole some music he was planning to buy, and didn't like it? He might never buy it! That's a lost sale.

I immediately demand that Apple Computer permanantly bolt the headphone jack into the iPod, and the headphones should not be removable from the ear once inserted. Also, the volume should be capped so that others nearby can't "listen in" (or steal, in other words).

We will sue one cute 12-year-old girl per week, until our demands are met. If our demands are not met after 60 days, we will begin issuing search warrants to 75-year-olds, to be carried out by federal marshals at 3am. If our demands aren't met after 120 days, then, well, I can't get into details, but the code-name for our plan is known as "OPERATION SELECTIVE SILENCE". It's pretty horrible.

If this becomes a real trend, people will probably start adding headphone splitters so others can jack in easier. Adding one will become an open invitation. Then a backlash against Podmiscuity will develop...

...and a few days later my headphone plug developed an awful rash!

Fellas, be wary of strange women who offer you to plug into them. Chances are that you're not the first, and her tastes aren't discriminating!

I wish this could work that easily with intercourse. - "Hi mam, would you mind letting me jack your vagina?"

AFAIK, even though firewire is a host less protocol you can't transfer files from one iPod to the next.

However, Creative jukeboxes can, and when the drab PC community catches up I wonder if people will not only listen to other people's music, but share it too- like a p2p network in flesh-space!

That's the idea behind my site www.musicmobs.org [musicmobs.org] . It takes your iTunes playlist and lets you see other people that have similar taste. It's a great way to find new music, and let other people check out what you are listening to.
