So, there’s the Walkman, then the Discman, then the iPod; as long as we’re listening to music, “on the go,” in public, we wear headphones.
But at some point, amid the proliferation of the iPhone, the iPad and all these other pocket-sized gadgets that go one step further and play TV and movies, people seem to have ditched the headphones concept. In public places, where the standard-issue music listener would have had headphones on, people are now just watching TV with the sound up in the cafeteria or at the airport like it’s their living room.
Humans: This is not your living room. We’re not your studio audience. This is the world. We’re all here with you.
