Are iPods causing anti-social behavior?

This article [free reg. required] at the NYT website is claiming that iPod use in NYC is causing people to become less social. I can’t help but think that the author’s right. I haven’t had my iPod for very long, but I’ve come to a point where I don’t want to use it when walking to class because it isolates me from the outside world. Sometimes that isolation is good and necessary, but I don’t want to do it all the time.
