    That’s just stupid. If people are getting killed because they’re not paying attention to road safety then that’s their own fault – so don’t punish everyone just because of the minority! Lol, I can just imagine the phone conversation between a New Yorker and a friend:
    “Oh sorry man, I’ll call you back in a minute – I have to cross the road now. Later.” I mean WTF?

    Next thing you know – people will be suing Apple and phone networks because they’re getting run over! This is just plain ridiculous! America has too many rules as it is.

    As long as it’s only the iPod (I have a Sony Walkman), and is in NY, (which I won’t be visiting again anytime soon), it’s OK.
    That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if a new set of warning labels start being included with the iPod
