Image of iPods from Apple Store website.
This image of iPod Nano is going to be joined by some ideas for using this product as an example of Globalisation, and how the supply chain works.
This would also be useful for the Pilot GCSE "People as Consumers" unit (check out the Pilot Geography blog)

The Mail on Sunday published an article recently which looked at the cost of production of this item, and the different countries which supplied the components. That will form the basis for this post.
To be continued....

For the mail on Sunday article, are you talking about the one published in August? I'd be curious to see it! Thanks.
