But people that buying Ipod.. just don't look around for better players.. and there are better players then Ipod ...
while i agree that ipod isn't the best player out there (i own a Creative Zen Vision:M myself), i think not all people buy ipod just to follow the trend. maybe they just like ipod's interface better? maybe they like ipod's design. maybe they just want a minimalisitc and intuitive player and not some feature-bloated ones?

LotR, definitely original. Dragonlance -- not as much. Harry Potter -- couldn't say. Eragon -- don't make me laugh. That's Star Wars with a veneer of D&D.
or rather i shouldn't say "original". i should use the word "different" instead. the four books above DO have _different_ style, don't they? you wouldn't equate LotR to Dragonlance to HP to Eragon, would you?

Please clarify who is meant by "you".
frankly, no one in particular. i did't intend to direct that comment to anyone when i was typing that out.
but i think the issue here is that we shouldn't stereotype people. not all trend-followers are attention-seekers and wanna-be-unique jerks. perhaps they simply identify with the trend? maybe they just want to escape from their boring daily lifes by doing what they are not used to doing? i mean, who are we to say whether someone is original or not?
