Necessary accessory?

My views on the injection of modern trappings into a small boat experience are now clear. So into that pot my beloved Paddling.net threw this new accessory below. This would be a waterproof case for your iPod. Now I can see if one is race-training this might be handy, but why in heck’s name would anyone want this otherwise? Don’t get me wrong, I love music, but in my living room, office, car, etc., not clobbering the serenity of being on the water. Again, to each their own, but I think this is the kind of thing that destroys our connection to – and thus respect for – boats and the boating environment, and that is what gets me. I suppose we’ll be asked to put sub-woofers under our stern thwarts soon…
