Fun With My New iTouch...

Someone has my ipod (classic) right now, so I've been without an ipod for two months now. To top it all off, the cd player in my car is busted, so I've had the pleasure (sarcasm) of listening to the radio everytime I want to listen to music. Now I've spoken about the radio down here before...'nuff said. Anthony got me the iTouch with his Amex points to replace the ipod that I am currently without. At first I thought having a touch screen would be annoying. Boy was I dead wrong. It basically can do everything an iPhone can without an actual phone. You can go on the web, google maps, watch YouTube videos, check e-mail as long as you are connected to a wi-fi hotspot. There are also games (most free) and other apps that can be useful, like finding restaurants, or listening to Pandora - awesome! I love the weather feature, which gives me weather for certain select cities. Right now it's 66 in WPB, 34 in London and 40 in NY. Brrr. You can even rent movies on iTunes for $2.99 which works out awesome if I booked a flight on an airline other than JetBlue. The simple "Home" button will bring you to the home screen wherever you are. No annoying complicated menu to get lost in. And it's super thin and sexy. It even has tiny speakers that can play sound - handy when YouTubing among friends. Scrolling through songs and artists with your finger is so easy and fun. I'm beyond happy with it, and can't believe I even doubted it. Eventually I think I may cross over to the iPhone, but that's after they at least get 32GB or 80GB models...

A friend of mine just got the iTouch and when I was playing with it I started thinking: why didn't I just spend the extra $ and get that instead of the ipod classic? I mean, I like my ipod a whole lot, it's lots of fun and there's SO much space on it still! But...the itouch is, I must admit, cooler. Sigh; I just bought the classic in August so I had better be satisfied.
I'm such a spoiled American.

I know, it stinks trying to be frugal, then regretting a decision. The thing with gagets, especially like an MP3 player, is you have to get a current model because they get outdated so quickly. Here's a thought, try selling it on eBay or to a friend with a slight discount. Then you can be a spoiled American and go get what you want. LOL.
