iPods on the front lines

The increase in compact consumer electronics has spurred a growing presence of media players on the front lines of modern warfare. Ars Technica offers commentary from soldiers on the front lines of the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan about technology they brought with them to the front lines. "The soldiers that we talked to all agreed that iPods, DVD players, and digital cameras were omnipresent." wrote Ars Technica. Many soldiers bring along their iPods, Web cams, computers, and portable DVD players for their time on the battlefront. The U.S. troops also share stories about hooking up MP3 Players to radio towers on bases, according to the report. [iPod image from Iraq included]
