The pocket-sized digital music player, which can store thousands of songs, is one of a series of banned gadgets that the military will no longer allow into most sections of its headquarters in the UK and abroad.

Anyone remember the story about the boy who plugged his iPod into a Mac at the Apple Store and downloaded the entire Microsoft Office suite to it?
But if you ban the iPod, couldn’t the same be said for other solid state storage such as CF, SD, and all other media players? I’m sure somebody will say it’s there God given freedom to take along anything they want into work. I can hear the cry from those geeks now.
