• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

In my school, I could spot at least 1 person every other day, but after Christmas more and more people had them 1 out of 10 and every once in a while I see someone with one and no white earbuds.

I live in Chicago and i've seen maybe 4 people with iPods, thats about it and they were all mini's. I'm sure there's more Podders but i'm sure they're all minis.

They're all over the place, particularly at the gym. I've only seen one other person with a shuffle though (at the gym again, and I had mine first :))

Well, my class seems to have loads of iPods. I have two, and then there's one guy with a mini and two with a 4G. But then, i've only seen about 5 other people with iPods in the whole of the rest of the school.

I see quite a few ipods at my school. I have only seen one other 3rd gen. Most I see are 4th gen or minis. I don't usually have my ipod showing because I snake the cord through my shirt and just have the right side earbud in my ear and the ipod in my pocket). I am very protective and only get my closest friend or 2 use it, while in my sight. I want to make sure no one can get their hands on it unless I know about it.

My country is heavily condensed (population 4million) and a majority fo them live in the city and yes, iPods are pretty popular, especially the 4th Gens.

They are getting more and more common where I live. I have started seeing a few on campus and at the gym. But they are still heavily outnumbered by muvos and no-name 512mb players. Probably because not a lot of stores sell apple equipment here.

Not many.. Maybe 50 at the most in my school.
i would think that 50 in one school would be quite a bit....unless you just go to a huge freaking school

At first it was one in a million when I bought my 3g almost two years ago. But now since our local gadget store Spaceword started selling them, their everywhere.

Loads of people here where I live. I find it quite amusing actually, cos all the people I see, all have the default white buds - for some reason, most of them seem to have one plug in, and one out which I think is sposed to be "street" or some kind of fashion statement. Nevertheless, it looks ####e... Also, I find it funny cos they actually use the default white headphones....If these people had any sense, they wouldn't. All they wear them for is to look cool and show off - Hey look at me, I have an iPod.. In fact it wouldn't suprise me if these people just have the headphones and no iPod!!!!. Jeez...Why buy an iPod to listen to it with the standard crappy headphones...

These people also look at my weird cos I have some Sony EX81s plugged in. I can almost read their minds "What is this guy got in his ears, is he trying to copy us iPod people with white headphones???"

I just want better buds thats all!!!

Rant over :D
