I think the magnetic part of a tape is the little bit inside the case that's near the foam. I'll search the net a bit today though to check if the ribbon itself is magnetic.

Update:
"The cassette tape is covered with a layer of magnetizable particles, commonly oxides of iron. These particles become magnetized when they are exposed to a strong magnetic field from a nearby magnet. They keep this magnetization until they are re-magnetized by another close approach by a magnet." I also found that computer hard drives are recorded in the same kind of way. So if you have magnets nearby them it will mess up your data.

So far no harm, but if anyone else wants to try this it might be a good idea to do research - or make something else out of the ribbon.

i still think it's awesome. i love it!

Awww... I was hoping that rumor wasn't true. But it is still a great idea, and looks awesome! There must be a way to ensure the ipod can't be harmed. An ipod protector, protector? Or maybe mixing with another material to cut down on the amount of magnetization around the ipod? I found this resource on Alyce Santoro's 'Sonic Fabric' projects which use 50% audio tape and 50% cotton. http://www.sonicfabric.com/
