iPod earphones, stand out from the crowd

I'd heard about this recently, but it has appeared on more news sites, that people are looking out for the infamous white earphones that indicate you're an iPod user and then stealing it from you!

You'd probably be more safe just walking down the road using your mobile phone! In this example, the guy obviously said yes when asked if he was carrying an iPod - stupid answer.

Even though this guy was in the Birmingham area, I think the term "Mean streets of Bimingham" isn't really justified - I think that guy just needs to be more street wise!

Being from just out of Birmingham myself I can tell you it's not that bad, this was just an exceptional case, maybe of user stupidity as well. Like anywhere it just depends on the area, Birmingham being the UK's second city is quite a big place. I've never had any problems here or anywhere else but then again maybe I am more street wise.

Time to change the headphones on your iPod?

I think not, just use some common sense and you'll be fine.
