Why is my Ipod heavier when it has more data on?
« on: 05/01/2008 21:37:17 »
Why when i upload songs onto my IPod..when i take it out..it seems heavier than when it was brand new? This is the same with my laptop??

Is there a reason for it..or is it just me?
If there is a reason for it

Howcome data can be passed wirelessly..if it weighs something??

thanks

It is just you, have you actually weighed the ipod before and after in a double blind experiment?

You get used the to feel of it in your hand or pocket then when you aren't holding it or wearing it in a pocket or such your body gets used to the feeling of nothing there so when you put it back in your hand or pocket it seems weightier as your body makes the adjustment again..

Perhaps it's heavy metal music?
