This is a little embarrassing to admit, but when it comes to gadgets I’m in the stone age. My phone is not very exciting, it’s old and lots of the keys do not work. And while my desktop computer is swanky, my laptop is far from cool. What made me wake up to the fact that my gadgets aren’t very current has to do with a young girl seated nearby on my flight home. You can learn a lot from a college student. She was sitting there enjoying videos and TV shows on her iPod and there I was with my prehistoric iPod Classic, well perhaps it is called the super classic or something because it has no color and can only play music and podcasts. I’ve used it for several years now and felt quite content with the way things were up until my flight home. I felt so out of touch, like I should be wearing mom jeans and a scrunchie, but more than that, kind of ticked because I wanted to watch sitcoms and music videos like college girl.
When I got home, I contacted my Mac geek friend in Luxembourg and he suggested the iPod Touch 30 Gig so I ordered it. It will arrive on Wednesday, the day I will officially rank a few points higher on the hip-o-meter. I rarely let others influence my purchases but I’m glad I did this time because I think this little gadget will be helpful for me and I love the fact that I can access the web on it and Facebook because I’m ADDICTED to it.
I know this isn’t a gadget blog, but I have to ask… Does anyone have the iPod Touch and if so, would you like to leave a review? I’m always interested in what my friends have to say about products so I’d appreciate your feedback. I’m especially interested in small business tips and ways that it may be able to help me in that respect.
