iPod nano busted for upskirting

One perv's furtive footwork

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

The new camera-equipped iPod nano has opened up an entirely new target market for Apple: music-loving degenerates.

Word comes from the gracefully named fuckedgaijin.com of the arrest of a man in Kobe, Japan, who used the mini media player to surreptitiously video an 18-year-old schoolgirl in a bookstore.

And, no, he didn't merely capture secret shots of the young lovely's face. According to fuckedgaijin.com, "He hid the nano in his shoe and, with the lens pointing upwards, shuffled along to get a shot up her skirt."

Not only are we amused by that description of the perv perp's clumsy footwork, we're also tickled by its blatant iPod punning: "shuffled" along...?

The Kobe upskirter is unlikely to be the last digital deviant to try such a stunt - and at least one US fitness club is already taking defensive maneuvers.

The 84-facility Life Time Fitness chain already bans cell phones from its locker rooms - after all, who wants to find their jiggy bits drawing guffaws on YouTube? But now the company's fitness centers have added the new iPod nano to its list of forbidden gadgets.

If you want to listen to tunes at Lifetime Fitness, may we recommend the aforementioned iPod shuffle? ®
