Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, August 10, 2021

Thanks to some intrepid file-diving by Chaz, the world now knows that the Sony MP3 Walkman is apparently engineered by texting-happy teenaged girls:

…I noticed that the folder on the machine which actually contains all the music files is called OMGAUDIO.

I know the iPod’s file system used to contain folders with names like “TheVolumeSettings” or somesuch. Depending on how your iPod synced with a computer, those telltale folders would wind up on networks, making them a dead giveaway that someone was hooking up their digital tunes to their workplace computer. (I think Apple has since revamped the file system; I’d check but I don’t have a syncing cable handy.)

Much like Chaz, I get a chuckle out of these kind of hidden techie foibles. Giggly is taking it a bit too far, though.
