Thank God my iPod broke

I got my first iPod at Xmas 2004 and was completely happy with it. My old iPod broke down and presented me with a little icon with a frowning face. It seems to be incompatible with my dock and my special iPod speakers, but boy does it looks great (I went for black), has all my music videos and photos installed and even synchronises with my Outlook calendar and contact list. That's until the new ones arrived with colour screens and video capability. It's a good job Apple products are so unreliable. Anyway, a blessing. just wish it was made by Apple rather than Sony

Video iPod Comes to Your Glasses

Kapp Notes

Let's continue the iPod discussion. While schools are banning iPods as fast as they can (see Hire that Kid!), several companies I work with have placed Standard Work Instructions onto iPods. Actually onto video iPods. Now take that video iPod to the next level and create glasses that allow you to view the video heads-up. They have created glasses that you hook up to a video iPod and then can see a "large screen" version right in front of you. The Just-In-Time learning allows the worker to see what he or she needs to do and then perform the task.
