I am back from Perugia (pop. 150,000), city of the future.
While there, I received a breathless report from a reliable Perugina source. Apparently, one of the hi-fi shops in town now sells a pocket-sized device capable of storing thousands of songs. Imagine, your entire CD collection in the palm of your hand. This wonder device is called Ipod (pronounced "EEE-poad" by the local cognoscenti). If it sells in Perugia, it may just arrive in your town some day. Remember: You heard it hear first.
