iPod enabled jacket for U.K. school kids

Schools and teachers have been fighting the use of iPod while the students are attending class, and I understand about the main concern: cheating the exams using iPod. And second one is probably when the students are rather listen to their iPods instead of the teaching of their teachers. ;-p

So I could imagine the face of every teachers, especially in U.K., when Marks & Spencer announced the availability of special iPod-enabled jacket for school kids.

The Marks and Spencer 2008 Back to School collection is featuring the coat and blazer have five Fibretronic function keypad controller discretely built into the lapel area of the inside lining. A strategically placed iPod pocket which doesn’t bulge, an iPod connector with a hidden circuit, concealed controls for operating the settings, lapel loops concealing the earphone wires.

The blazer is available in girls and boys sizes from age ten to age sixteen and retails at £25.00 to £30.00 ($47.- to $57.-). The winter coat for girls and boys ages ten to sixteen is retailing at £35.00 to £40.00 ($76.- to 66.-) all models directly available by Marks and Spencer.
