Headphones

Now and then an invention comes along that sweeps a nation . . . and the world. Such an invention was the cell phone, the computer, and now ipods. The fact that everyone is wearing ipod headphones on the subway these days -- or nearly everyone -- is a strong indication that fads spread quickly and that humans are imitators. In fact, sometimes it becomes difficult to resist the tide of opinion and think outside the box. When everyone adopts a technology it is often the result of a meme, or an idea that spreads like a virus.
