iPod Stereotypes in the Media

iPod head

IT turns out that Larry King, whom I recently mentioned, is not the only technophobe in showbiz. Have a look at this one.

According to, O’Reilly dubbed all iPod users “geeks” and implied that those who bought one were socially inept.

In a move illustrating how in touch he is with young people he spluttered: “I don’t own an iPod. I would never wear an iPod. Did you ever talk to these computer geeks? I mean, can you carry on a conversation with them?”
