Say Hello to my Leetle Friend...

It's been approximately a year since DBF persuaded me to buy an iPod. "It'll change your life," he said. I scoffed but bought one anyway. Dang, I hate it when he's right! Yep, I'm officially a Pod person. I haven't totally drunk the Kool-Aid. For example, this blog entry is being typed up on a Dell lap top with Windows.

And no, I don't think Steve Jobs is the second coming. But my iPod is a fun little toy that holds my entire CD collection with room to spare. And I love being able to buy just the songs I want through iTunes instead of an entire disk. I listen to it at home, in my car, at the gym and at the office. I probably won't get the iPhone, but I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the next generation of iPods--surely Steve realizes that a lot of us have company cell phones that we get for "free" and will have pity on us. It would be cool to have an iPod where the screen is the entire side.

That being said, I'm introducing a new feature to the blog. From time to time, I'll be posting on fun stuff from my iTunes and iPod.

Ah, welcome to the Dark Side, my friend. I'm listening to Da Le Yaleo by Santana as I type this. It makes anything more enjoyable! Back to the sewing room. Ciao!

Ah - I love having this type of experience! Most of the time, to me anyway, new technology feels incremental in terms of the "wow" factor. I love it when you get that unexpected rush of pleasure from something that is really really cool. I had the same experience rcently with Netflix - I was shocked at how much I loved the concept once I gave it a try! Phyllis
