Ipod dating.

Bruce Nussbaum

OK. We now have video iPod dating. Just like about a million other people, I just now received this new dating service via email. The woman on the video iPod says she's looking for a guy who is honest, genuine and authentic. She ends with "...So pod me."

The world we live in. Don't you just love it?

One comment,

Dating and generally communication is a feature adopted by all new products. So, why not the IPOD?

I'll go a little bit farther: If you design a totally new product, you MUST consider its ability to communicate.

Please note also that this feature actually comes at the product's second or third generation.

First generation GSM phones didn't allow SMS.

The transition from second to third GSM generation is characterized by MMS.

Just have a look on USB hard disks, they are now playing music.

I wouldn't be surprised if I see such devices equipped with a communication port allowing to send informations to the neighbourhood. Like:

"Well, I am listening this kind of music/this song!"

May be a feature to add to Ipods?

The point is to know why people use such prothesis to communicate. This is a real question.

What's the name of the service or the web side, would be interested in seeing it.

Did you subscribed to get the video or did they just send it to you?
