FREE DUKE UNIVERSITY IPODS
go dukies
I'm thinking about going back to school. Preferably Duke, where they're giving freshmen free iPods to see if they work as learning aids.

I think it's a radical concept to most: That these latter-day Walkmans also work as bona fide portable disk drives. It's that aspect of the iPods that make them so appealing to techies. I've made limited use of the storage drive capabilities on my iPod; fact is, I rarely ever connect it to my computer, so it doesn't come off very often. But I did load a bunch of contact information on it at one point, and it did come in handy.
