Today's college students roam their school campuses more gadget-laden than ever before.
At Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., sophomore Allison Hollinger logs onto the school's campus-wide wireless system to finish her Spanish homework as she sends a text message from her LG Cingular phone and listens to her favorite band, Say Anything. She, like many of her fellow Sun Devils, uses iPods as a source of music and as a back-up hard drive. She also has an iTrip FM transmitter for the iPod and an iHome speaker dock.
