Fort Gordon purchases iPods for foreign language training

Last week, Augusta's Metro Spirit reported that the Navy contingent at Fort Gordon has purchased at least 700 iPods this year. After apparently being given the standard military run-around, reporter Corey Pein spoke with a public affairs officer who informed him that the iPods were purchased for foreign language training. One iPod - this is the 30GB model we're talking about - can hold "an entire study course of Arabic, Farsi or Mandarin" (or, one imagines, basically any other language). Oh, and they're video iPods... so porn, too.
