A Ban on iPod Oblivion

It seems that people in NYC are walking blithely across the streets with iPods blaring, talking on cellphones or staring at their Blackberries and creating traffic obstacles, sometimes resulting in their own deaths. For some reason, this upsets people and now NYC is planning on fining people $100 for using one of these popular devices while crossing the street. A certain friend might not be too happy about that news, but that said, he probably understands the value of paying attention when his life is at risk.

So soon it will be economically disadvantageous to shuffle across a busy intersection, texting your friends while checking google maps and bopping to the latest Fall-Out Boy single. Sheesh. So much for land of the free...
