50 Fun Things To Do With Your iPOD

It is strange sometimes how one thing can lead to another and this was one of them.

I was flipping through a magazine and saw this one article which read "How to be single in a couple's world?". The article general talked about what do when oen is surrounded by twosomes and flying solo can sometimes suck. It gave some tips to help one cope during dude-free days (womem magazine lah). So, just wondering what a goggle search will cough up, I typed in "things to do when you have no boyfriend" and the first item displayed was "50 Fun Things To Do With Your iPod ". Mmmm...interesting.

I went through it and actually there were only 44 fun things listed haha.. but the ones I like the most were the following:-

Share your music with complete strangers
Approach someone with the signature white ear buds, smile, and trade headphone jacks to get an earful of your new friend's music.

Find your way in the dark
Griffin's iBeam turns your iPod into a laser pointer (for presentations, annoying people at the movies, or exercising your cat) or a flashlight. If only it would shine the currently playing song info.

Get mugged
Thieves in several cities have reportedly been targeting folks wearing the iPod's signature white headphones and stealing their iPods. Look at this as an excuse to get some better headphones.

Murder someone recently reported that "Memphis woman was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after she bludgeoned her boyfriend to death with an iPod" but was later revealed to be a hoax. Still, the 60GB iPod Photo is a hefty chunk of metal...

Get religion
Take the Book of God anywhere with BiblePlayer, listen to the Quran on your walk to the office, or discover the wisdom of the Torah on the train.

Disguise it as breath mints
The iPod shuffle is so small that it fits nicely within a case of Altoids. Punch a hole in the top for your headphones, and people watching you listen to an Altoids tin will think there's something curiously wrong with you.

Put on your makeup
The mirrored surface on the reverse of the larger iPods makes for a good emergency make-up mirror, as this woman demonstrates (second photo down).
