Det har kommit en ny bok ifrån O’Reilly, med namnet Cult of iPod. Det verkar vara en intressant book om iPod-fenomenet. Kanske visar omslaget lite på att det kan finnas vissa inslag i den kulturen som inte jag direkt gillar. Men jag måste erkänna att iPodden verkligen har varit en isbrytare när det gäller att göra MP3–spelarna till allmängods.

Wired News editor Leander Kahney follows up his bestselling The Cult of Mac with The Cult of iPod, a comprehensive look at how Apple’s hit iPod is changing music, culture, and listening behavior. The Cult of iPod includes the exclusive back story of the iPod’s development; looks at the many ways iPod’s users pay homage to their devices; and investigates the quirkier aspects of iPod culture, such as iPod-jacking (strangers plugging into each other’s iPods to discover new music) as well as the growing legions of MP3Js (regular folks who use their iPods to become DJs).
