I Built My Girlfriend's iPod
Stranded on a desert island? At least you have your iPodSolar.
Music Story  September 11, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Bestest girlfriend already rated an iPod simply for being a Taurus, but on that deserted strip of Chicon, Heat Wave became our tropic getaway, competing with a cricket-pocked absence of civilization. Here was a desert island disc as bright as the North Star yet also wearing SPF 60 sunscreen and talking volleyball with Tom Hanks...."

The Invasion
This fourth film telling of Invasion of the Body Snatchers appears to be made by pod people themselves.

Film Review  August 24, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Jeremy Northam, Malin Akerman, Jackson Bond, Jeffrey Wright and Veronica Cartwright. It's almost impossible to think of a sci-fi story that speaks more eloquently to these paranoid, fearful, "iPod, youPod, we all pod for iPod" times than Jack Finney's Body Snatchers, the 1955 novel that spawned three excellent film adaptations and introduced the concept of "pod people" to the world at large..."

Jobs
Ashton Kutcher plays Apple visionary Steve Jobs in this unrevealing biopic.
starstar
Film Review  August 23, 2013, by Marc Savlov
"...But Jobs, which focuses on the genius entrepreneur's early years before ending – or, rather, beginning – with the introduction of the game-changing iPod in 2001, glosses over plenty of salient material (Jobs’ acquisition, in 1986, of what would later be Pixar, for one) in favor of already twice-told tales of formative LSD experiences, home-brew computing, and nefarious boardroom doings. It fails to rise above the inherent limitations of the traditional Hollywood biopic and it's about as insanely great as a Mac "low cost" LC model – which was, to be fair, pretty cool...."

Baby Driver
A heist goes wrong for a music-loving getaway driver
starstarstarstar
Film Review  June 30, 2017, by Steve Davis
"...Baby Driver is behind the wheel, and what a kickass joyride it is. Filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) has accomplished something truly original here: an action film choreographed to music, with the soundtrack supplied by an eclectic playlist of songs streaming from the iPod of an angel-faced daredevil who drives the getaway car for some brazenly dangerous bank robbers..."

Summer Fun: Into the Mystic of High Road Pool
Plunging back in time with my iPod
DAILY Music  May 13, 2014, by William Harries Graham
"...Maybe it’s their first time swimming; often it is. I float as I watch them and my iPod clicks to Inland Sky: “Little hands, the world is yours/ Hold it close with open arms/ I see me in you.”..."

I Sold the Lousy T-Shirt Off My Back and All I Got Was This iPad
What's Apple's touch tablet actually for?
DAILY Screens  April 30, 2010, by Adam Theriault
"...While it largely performs to Apple's 10 hour claim, the recharge rate is significant. The included cable is the standard length that comes with an iPhone and iPod touch, which makes connection to a floor plug or wall outlet in a coffee shop a bit impractical without an extension cord..."

After a Fashion
Last week was all about film, and this week, music. Is Stephen excited about a certain upcoming festival or what?
Columns  February 22, 2008, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...POD PEOPLE I got an iPod for Christmas, and I've been obsessed with importing all my CDs onto it. During the heyday of Napster, I religiously saved all the music I loved..."

Ballroom Dancing
SXSW panels
Music Story  March 17, 2006, by Michael Bertin
"...Austin Convention Center, Wednesday, March 15 It was impossible to miss the central point of Ted Cohen's SXSW interview: "It's not about the technology, it's about the business model." Cohen, head of digital business development for EMI, was a little vague, however, on who the models served, because ultimately the fights in the digital world are the same as those in the world of round, shiny objects, namely: Who gets how much? The bulk of the panel was basically a quick survey course in technologies and trends, to which the iPod was central. There are a number of portable players on the market with more features than the iPod and at a better price, but the iPod has 80% of the market..."

From Camilla Parker Bowles to the perks and perils of catering to the consumer
Screens Column  December 23, 2005, by Belinda Acosta
"...Just look at these recent partnerships, as reported by Jennifer Armstrong in the Entertainment Weekly Dec. 16 issue: ABC is working with "Apple's iTunes and the new video iPod to provide downloads of shows like Desperate Housewives and Lost for $1.99 an episode." CBS and Comcast Cable have partnered "to offer select shows on demand (CSI, NCIS, Survivor) for 99 cents starting in January." NBC and DirecTV are getting together to sell Law & Order episodes and other series..."

The House of Tomorrow
Punk coming-of-age tale is a little too sweet for its own good.
starstar
Film Review  May 18, 2018, by Marc Savlov
"...As Sebastian emerges from his ever hovering grandmother’s home into the light of day, Jared just wants to live a normal, punk rock life, if his ticker doesn’t go out on him, that is. (In a smart riff on the typical meet-cute setup, Jared blows Sebastian’s mind by playing him Los Angeles first-wavers the Germs on his iPod.) The two decide to form a band, of course they do, but will they name it Punkminster Fuller? So much at stake, and only two weeks before the big church talent show, too! Time to steal a bass guitar from the church basement and nail down those infamous three-chords-and-the-truth...."

Vinyl’s Tin Cup Chalice
Finyl vinyl thoughts from the stacks of Antone’s Records
DAILY Music  January 15, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez

You Got Me Singing
Another Spotify convert
DAILY Music  August 10, 2011, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Maybe it’s because I’ve had almost no experience when it comes to online music services that it seems so exciting. I’ve never owned an iPod or any portable music player other than a Walkman and I haven’t used one of those in more than 15 years..."

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
A teenager's Greek mythology book comes to life and thrusts him into an adventure to recover Zeus' stolen lightning bolt.
starhalfstar
Film Review  February 19, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...(presumably) everything, acne and all, but I'm fairly certain that only in this movie can you see the great Coogan as Hades, stroking a flaming, phallic shaft of lightning while verbally ejaculating the priceless phrase "Zeus' master bolt!" Great galloping gumdrops! How long has the twisted comic genius behind I'm Alan Partridge and Monkey Trousers been waiting to say that million-dollar line? Only the gods know, and perhaps only the gods care, but Coogan? There's a gleam in his eye that can't be missed. Other highlights include former 007 Brosnan as a very serious centaur, Pantoliano as the stinky stepdad to the half-blood son of Poseidon (Lerman as the titular Percy), and Thurman's haute-couture take on the serpent-maned Medusa, who, in the most egregious bit of overt product placement in recent memory, is defeated via the mirrored backside of an iPod..."

Brüno
Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno is less specific and less interesting than Borat – and therefore less funny.
starhalfstar
Film Review  July 10, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...While it's certainly possible that a theatre full of Southern-fried rednecks might not get the joke, or care to, the converse is so ill-tempered here that you almost feel bad for all the cultural flotsam and jetsam on parade here. That includes the group of Deliverance-esque bunny hunters who accept Brüno into their midst (why?) and the Dallas-area talk-show crowd that recoils at the sight of Brüno's newest fashion accessory: an African baby he "swapped" for an iPod on his way to the U.S..."

Stephen ponders self-immolation
Columns  January 23, 2009, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...Who knows where things like that go? I don't, but I'm currently licensing my name for a line of sturdy new safety helmets that are so pretty that you hardly even realize that you're wearing combat gear. Selflessly, I also donated an unused iPod dock to a needy friend who only had headphones..."
