UNCLE!










I give! Those regular readers and friends know that I have never been a big fan of the Apple. Yes, they were all very well designed products. They always seemed to be overpriced. I always saw Apple as the luxury car of the computer industry. Sure I would look good with it, but I could get more features for less money going another route. I had a particularly strong distain for the iPod. My first Mp3 player was my Dell "ghetto pod." That was then followed by my Zen Micro. I still love my Zen Micro, and would have gladly purchased the new Zen Micro with the color screen. The problem is it still hasn't come out. So fastforward to last Thursday. There I am checking my e-mail when I click on one with the subject: iPod nano. I will admit I was smitten. There it was with it's beautiful color screen and it was so tiny. So incredibly tiny. So, I cried "uncle!" I went and bought one. I still really like my Zen Micro, but the iPod nano has yet to leave my side. Yes, I feel incredibly guilty about it in all respects. But come on! Look at it!

I got to hold and caress an iPod nano at church on Sunday. So. Tiny. I love it! Too bad I really don't have any use for an iPod smaller than my current 20GB. I wanted an iPod mini, but only because I wanted the pink one.

I think the whole problem is that gadgets have become my turkish delight.

Well done!!! It is my belief that MAC is going to team up with CHINA to become the next super power!

Wait! I thought that already came to pass.
