Subject: 	iPod Shakespeare

Today's (new-style "Berliner" size) "Guardian" newspaper (15/09/05) has 
an editorial in praise of the iPod nano, stating it's "no dumbing-down 
machine" that's good only for "pop or rap" but can be used for plays 
etc, and that some American Universities are "already supplying set 
books in iPod-ready form".  For an essay I am writing, I am after hard 
evidence, rather than second-hand anecdote, about anyone listening to 
Shakespeare on an iPod or other of the newer sound technologies. (I'd 
also like to hear about use of older ones such as PCs, walkmans, and 
even car audio equipment for the same purpose).  I'd also be interested 
to hear any users' thoughts about experiencing Shakespeare this way. 
Please reply off list to
