where reference & music geekiness meet

A must-have for a reference / iPod geek? Merriam-Webster Reference for the iPod . For $9.95, you can get Merriam-Webster‘s 2006 Pocket Dictionary on your iPod.

iPrepPress offers other reference / study guides for the iPod, including several Shakespeare plays, SAT study guides, and Spanish vocab charts. They also offer a few historic U.S. documents for your ‘Pod, including the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

I haven’t used any of this, but … it’s a great idea. What are the implications for libraries??

It might be a techie step backwards, but old-fashioned has its place: how bout a pocket U.S. Constitution designed to fit on each side of a single sheet of paper (Articles on one, Amendments on the other)? I keep three folded up in my wallet -- one for me and two to give away :) The real kicker is the price: FREE.

The College Board will have to add a new line to the administration instructions that are read to the students who are taking the SAT: "please remove all iPods from your desk." Let's see how many students will find creative ways to use their iPods in less than honest ways. I wonder why Duke stopped the distribution of iPods?
