Invasion of the Pod People

"You don't have an iPod!"

The other night I was at an gig where two DJs played tunes by linking their iPods into the PA system. Rather disappointing from my point of view: I'm an old fashioned kind of chap who thinks a DJ should follow tradition and spin vinyl. And a 7" 45 sounds better than an MP3. No, really, you get more top end from a 45.

Anyway, I digress. At some point a punter requested a song that the DJs hadn't brought with them. So he pulled his own iPod out of his pocket, plugged it into the system and played the song.

I have seen the future. The pod people are taking over!
