iPod wins the Nobel!

A newspaper should hire me to be that guy whose only job is to write titles and headlines. I can make them as misleading and sensationalist as the best of ’em!

But really, this year’s Nobel Prize for Physics is going to Albert Fert and Peter Grunberg for the invention of Giant Magnetoresistance. And yes, one of the many thingamajigs that uses this technology is iPod. But it makes for such a cool headline….

    I almost shredded the paper this morning when I had to read through 4/5th of the article to find out what the Nobel prize was actually awarded for. Ipod was mentioned several times in the first 4/5ths of the article.
