Do You Own a Non-iPod?
If ever there was a sign of the iPod's ubiquity it's this: Amazon has separated out the iPod from the rest of the media player pack and created its own 'non-iPod' category to house the rest. Zunes, Creative Visions and all of the rest of them have been relegated to this generic category. Really, this is just confirmation of what we already knew: that the iPod has won.
The iPod has become the digital audio player. Some may tell you that there's no point buying anything but an iPod; others use iPod as a universal term to describe any audio player. There may be hundreds of non-iPod music players available, but sometimes it seems as if they just don't matter. We might just start referring to everything as a non-iPod. For example, "My non-iPod celebrated her 80th birthday this weekend."
