Mind Versus Music:
Listening to tunes has plenty of benefits-but helping kids memorize isn't one of them, say researchers from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. Students were more likely to recall a list of letters in a specific order that they'd memorized in silence than a list they'd studied with music on-regardless of whether or not they liked the songs. For a boost, you might want to consider having kids use their iPods before a big test or competition; research suggests it may actually improve some kinds of performance.
"I've been looking at the iPod- the Apple iPod. One of the interesting things about the iPod, one of the things that people love most about it is not the technology; it's the box it comes in."
-- Donald Norman
"My iPod that was programmed by Peter Buck. It has 7,000 songs hand-picked for me by him. "
-- Michael Stipe (For the last quarter of a century Michael Stipe has been the lead singer of R.E.M)
