Could millions of iPods around the world catch a breather for, let's say, the next forty days or so?
Believe or not, there is a movement underway that could actually inspire many around the world to include their iPods on the list of items to sacrifice during Lent, a religious season of sacrifice known as Advent that begins with the observance of Ash Wednesday - which is today.
According to the UK's Telegraph:
The bishops of Liverpool and London have called on us to give up our iPods for Lent
There is, of course, a humanitarian theme behind the movement. Those who agree to give up their iPods for Lent are encouraged to calculate their "energy savings" and send the difference to a worthwhile cause or charity that serves the less fortunate.
Anyone planning to actually forgo their iPod for Lent?
