A couple of months ago, Hubby bought me something I said I didn't need. A 32GB iPod Touch. I was happy with my Nano (the generation before this one that plays video) and really, 4GB was enough. But he insisted. He said I'd need it at the RWA National Conference this summer.
Yeah, right. He's never been to conference. He has no idea that you're lucky to snatch 4 hours of sleep a night, much less have time to listen to music.
But, oh my, I've fallen in love with this thing. I have videos on it. Music. Audiobooks. I can email. Watch You Tube. I can rent movies from iTunes to watch while traveling. Am I sorry I have this toy? No.
The other day, I had a doctor's appt. And they stuck me in the room to wait for the 30 minutes it takes the doctor to arrive. I read a book for a while. And then I watched videos. Awe-SOME.
Yes, this baby is going to San Francisco with me. How did I ever live without it?
Any toys you can't do without? Electronic gadgets that enhance your writing or make it easier for you to be organized? Do you even have an iPod? I can remember when I scoffed and didn't want the Nano. WHAT was I thinking? 🙂 If you do have an iPod, do you have your content organized? I admit to being too lazy to make playlists….
I’m holding out for 32GB iPhone. I know they’re coming out soon. My current contract expires in November and when it does… its MINE baby. Merry Christmas to ME.
In the meantime, I have a 4 GB mini I picked up at Unclaimed Baggage. I, too, had held out because I didn’t want 10 different gadgets, I just wanted one (like the iPhone, which does it all). But now, of course, I’m addicted. And yes, I do have playlists because I’m neurotic like that.
I want the iPhone too. Our contract goes until January and then we can switch. But what am I going to do with an iTouch and an iPhone? Odd.
You know what, though, the battery on this thing is amazing. Even watching videos doesn’t drain it quickly.
No iPod. Heck, my cellphone rang one day and one of the Playfriends said “You mean they actually just ring?”
Not that I wouldn’t mind having toys but they’re expensive and I could see getting carried away with them.
The computer is about as toy-ish as I get.
PM, come to the dark side! You really, really want an iPod….. 😉
When you get your iPhone, you will pass your iTouch along to your dear friend who needs it desperately… ::VBG::
And, I’m glad your hubby keeps you connected during the RWA conference. How else would I be able to check my email? (Of course, all but three people I know will be at the conference, so there’s not much mail to be fetched, but I go into withdrawal without my internet connection)
Hubby has told me I can get a smaller iPhone because with the capacity on my touch, I won’t need major capacity on the phone.
He is forgetting that I will then be carrying TWO of these things around.
Oh, the iPhone announcement was today. No 32GB, but the 8 and 16 are faster and going down in price. Woo hoo!
