Which iClod Wants To Tax Your iPod?


Former New Jersey governor Jim Florio became one of that state’s most hated figures when he raised taxes left and right, but most notably on toilet paper. Toilet-paper rolls were thrown over the fence at the governor’s mansion on a regular basis in protest.

I can’t see people throwing their iPods over the fence at the New York governor’s mansion. But doesn’t that seem like a perfect symbol to trigger a tax revolt?

UPDATE: Reader Kevin writes in, “throw those cheap, worthless set of headphones Apple supplies you w/ your iPod that has a lifespan of six weeks.”
