Student Monitor surveyed US college students to find what’s in and what’s out. 73% said iPods were “in”. Drinking beer and Facebook.com, a social networking Web site, were tied for second most popular, with 71% of the students identifying them as “in”, followed by text messaging, bar hopping and downloading music. In 2005, only 59% of students named the iPod as “in,” putting the gadget well below alcohol-related activities.
