Work-out stories for the Apple iPhone (Rousse)

Anyone who prefers to listen to narrative rather than music when working out will be familiar with the problem of media length. At the end of a work-out it’s not so difficult to wait for a three-minute song to come to its conclusion (or indeed cut it off), but for narrative it’s a different matter. Do you get back onto the treadmill for another five minutes, or sacrifice hearing the end of the piece until after your shower?

Researchers are working on a product for narrative – stories, documentaries, plays and the like – that self-edits according to work-out length without compromising the item’s “plot”. This is bound to be a big hit with the Apple iPhone digerati, as well as others whose time to listen varies according to different tasks.
