dc.description.abstract This article examines the iPod as a product of globalisation and as a consumer commodity that exemplifies digital capitalism. In tracing the journey of the iPod through its globalised production process, this article attempts to evaluate the iPods relationship to global market economics. Employing world-systems and dependency theory, the article investigates its assembly and explores the impact that it has upon the lives of those directly involved in the manufacturing process; people involved in an international division of labour within the globalised digital economy en_US
