The New Love of my Life
Well the missus broke down after my year long whining fits and ponied up big bucks for what I consider the ultimate "How did we live before this?" item in the Universe. The I-Pod.
Not just any I-Pod, but the latest and greatest (until June probably) state of the art, video playing, 7500 song holding, ultra slim and slick, pimped out, fifth generation, mack daddy of them all I-Pod.
And I have to say, I think I'm in love - and the honeymoon isn't anywhere near over. I love having all of my CD's in a tiny little thing. I love that when I play this thing in my car, I get only songs that I like. It's like a satellite radio station, just for me.
Above all else though, I guess the gadget freak in me has achieved geek nirvana simply because this thang is just so bleeping slick. The interface, the design, it really is the most elegant piece of technology I've ever owned, or even held in my hand for that matter.
The wife doesn't quite get it, and I guess I really don't either. Sure it's great, but I can't quite put my finger on what makes it so geek-tastic. Ah well, 40 million other Ipod owners and a skyrocketing stock are testifying to the same thing I am - this thing rocks.
