I think more of Phoenix University. Or,?the huge market, now, in 
colleges/universities who promise a BA/BS in one year if you have a community 
college degree or two-years in a college.?The marketing for those schools, 
espcially the for-profit ones,?is incredible. Not sure about the quality of the 
education of those coming out, though I understand that they are trying a bit 
harder with more quality control than they used to do.

Donal, we had the?same experience with a generic MP3 player. I cannot remember 
what we did to fix it.? So, I don't think it is just the IPod.???I think my son 
figured it out--but it took us a while and we were both frustrated--and wanted 
to go purchase an IPod because surely IT would have been easier and we would be 
able to listen the music once it was disconnected from the computer.? I think 
it might be the useres <g> or the computer, as you mentioned.

Pop academia, based on heavy 
marketing, without substance? The academic subject that comes to mind would 
be "The Institute for Paris Hilton Studies".
