College Students Rate iPods Over Beer

In what can only be described as a stunning development, undergrad students have rated Apple's iPod as the most "in" thing (according to a Student Monitor study reported by the AP), eclipsing beer for only the second time in the study's 18 year history. 73% of the students surveyed rated the iPod as "in", while beer and social networking website Facebook.com garnered second place with 71%.

The last time beer was knocked from the top spot was 1997, when the Internet took top prize. The AP article is mirrored at CNN.
