Flipping through my SURFER mag, I came across new technology: washable headphones built into a hoodie. To see more details check it out here. Part of me likes this and part of me dislikes this. I like it because it is trendy and convenient. I dislike it because the trend is to block out the world.
“Are you trying to talk to me? Sorry, can’t you see I obviously don’t want to be communicated with?”
This hoodie is more incognito with the headphones, and will probably only make you look like more of a jerk when you walk by people yelling at you to watch out for oncoming traffic. I was once out shopping, and I saw this family shopping together ALL of them with their ipods in. I was like, “Wow, now that is bonding.”
