Top department store Selfridges is to start offering iPod lessons for its customers confused about using the must-have gadget. Those keen to take part in the 40-minute session will have to pay £65 for the privilege. The lessons, which include subjects like using iTunes, installing and deleting videos, creating playlists and downloading Podcasts and can be done in-store or via a home visit.
Selfridges claims that the tutorials are being introduced because of customer demand and are aimed particularly at children and the over-40s.
Is it a good deal? Well, you can go to your local Apple shop and get some help at the "Genius Bar" absolutely free. The nearest Apple store to the London Selfridges is on Regent Street. That’s a 15 minute walk away. The Manchester Selfridges at the Trafford Centre is around 5 minutes walk away from Apple’s branch there. So take your pick.
