IDC if actual "communists" use all this technology, but under their guise, thei principle, what they would ideally have in place, would not to be able to buy these products. Firstly because you can't "buy" things in a society without capital, despite the fact the society that did try to abolish capital, Catalonian spain, ended up going back to it. And any other society that didn't/hasn't can't be classes as advanced and no-one from this age, would want to live in it, unless anarch-communists are determined to turn is alo back into grubs, in that case, anarcho-communists are secretely primitivists!!!
Anyway, a communist authority, as communists would like to envision one, i/e, a council, commune, stateless collective or a collectivised judiciary sphere, would ban the purchase of ipods, firstly, because they are made under exploitative conditions in a capitalist economy, if they were trots, or secondly, international communism, as marx-engels envisioned, then ipods would most likely not distrobuted, or made, firstly because under initial "dictatorship of the prolateriate conditions" central planning takes over, no-need to go into that, I'm afraid Mises, Friedman, and even every Keyensian has that covered for me, and fails. Or that in statelessness, without a profit motive, there is no-need to create an ipod, and for those cutesy woostsy anarcho-communists, ipods wont be created because they are not based upon labour and fit for purpose labour.
I've got about 6 more scenarios floating round in my head but I CBA going into them, because this is all pointless waxing.
I', not misrepresenting your views, I never suggested this society was communist, just that the person I was talking to was/was asking about that area.
For the modern p***** "socialists", to-the-left social democrats and democratic socialists, almost no ideas are shared with communism or orthodox socialism (who were anarchists, who favoured a capital-less society).
