"...10 in Stockholm, France's Albert Fert and Deutschland's Peter Grünberg won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their independent manipulation of electromagnetic fields allowing for storage of astronomical amounts of data onto minuscule hard drives. That's right, the iPod won the Oscar of the science universe..."
"...While the new formats will undoubtedly add a level of diversity to the radio dial, most are readily available in many forms these days, including on satellite and a wide variety of Web services. It's also the reality of the modern media world that any hardcore blues enthusiast eager for a commercial-free blues extravaganza can simply dial up his favorite iPod playlist...."
"...It's not just Santiago's dove-in-a-Cuisinart riffs or Black's keening, timing-belt howl that makes this doc such a blast – it's the downright amazing revelation that, after all these years, the Pixies sound better than ever. Directors Cantor and Galkin complement pre-tour practice footage (wherein the iPod acts as collective memory for the band) with a brace of live concert recordings and the requisite "Are we sure we want to do this?" backstage drama..."
"...(There are some bloody and violent moments, but, overall, the movie just dutifully proceeds from Point A to Point B.) Nor does the family have any particularly interesting complications within their own dynamic; they’re movie-perfect and would be as dry as crackers if Madsen weren’t around. (Note to the filmmakers: close proximity to Paul Bettany excites 14-year-old iPod girls.) There’s a bit wherein Patrick (who is quite capable outside of his corporate-sleazebag métier and should probably be the star of the film) chases Ford’s classy family sedan through a parking garage, and for a brief and shining moment he seems ready to morph into the T-1000 Terminator and really get the movie going..."
"...Certainly we can't trust business and government to solve our problems. There's never been a time when individuals had the opportunity to make such a difference."Pod People Time to finally upgrade to a video iPod..."
"...Yes, the holidays have definitely arrived. You can demote that iPod to the seventh day of Chanukah, because Xbox 360 is here..."
"...When I mention this nagging perception that radio sucks to Dusty Black, who runs six stations in Austin for Clear Channel Communications, he doesn't sound worried. These cynical, CD-loving, Toby Keith-hating, iPod-toting malcontents are a "small minority," Black said..."
"...Jessica Biel is apparently subbing for Daphne, and as the illegitimate daughter of Blade’s pal Whistler (Kristofferson, looking as aged as a sunlit Dracula), she leads into battle the wisecracking former vamp Hannibal King (Reynolds) and comic Patton Oswalt, among other bloody misfits. Biel, for all her high-kicking athleticism in the role, is burdened with what must be the most obvious bit of product placement in recent memory, namely an Apple iPod, which she spends an inordinate amount of time fiddling with before laying waste to various and sundry evildoers..."
"...This they still do; among the books they've brought are the latest World Almanac and Book of Facts, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, and How to Draw Fast Cars, Monster Trucks, & Fighter Jets. Everyone save the bassist has also brought his iPod..."
"...Give kids something they can use right now, you know? Get their attention right now, and music is the way to do that. You know, instead of taking that iPod out of your ears, tell us what you’re listening to and we’ll trace it back for you..."
"...Margaret and I once pledged that, upon the physical transcendence of one of our deities – Jagger, Richards, Watts – we’d fly to whatever destination to bend the knee and bow our heads. The night she died, after fulfilling the responsibilities our profession demanded between 2-4am, I killed the lights, lit a candle, and scrolled through her favorite Stones album on my iPod – Let It Bleed..."

"...First there is the wunderkind magician Jobs, all charm/smirk, who seemingly pulled cultural change from his sleeve: Macintosh, iMac, iPhone, iPod, iPad. Then Gibney hammers us with the dark side: the man who originally denied he was a father to Lisa, then manned up and named an Apple computer after her; the vindictive businessman who lashed out at tech journalists who came into possession of an iPhone prototype; the guy who gave himself and pals sleazy backdated stock options while using overseas accounts to avoid taxes...."
"...Or, as Jobs would say, they "think different," says Isaacson. Having conducted more than 40 interviews with Jobs over the course of two years, Isaacson found that Jobs' proudest achievements weren't products like the iPod or the Macintosh..."
"...AC: Who are your favorite groups? Who’s on your iPod? What does Charles Attal listen to?..."
"...The two had already banded together – she on drums, he on keyboards – for the family gathering circuit, and even boasted original tunes. Ussery has their first collaboration, "Snow Day," on her iPod...."
