My first IPod.
I recently started using my first IPod which I inherited when my lovely spouse found it months after losing it to the couch pillows. In the mean time Ethan and I had given her a brand new one for her birthday to replace it. It goes without saying that I got the old one.
While I had used my cell phone as an MP3 player for the past few years but I really hadn't gotten into the whole downloaded music scene. But now that I have the IPod I have started exploring the crazy world of podcasts.
As I am typing this, I am listening to a lecture on Einstein's theory of relativity in relation to time and matter (yes, I am a geek). I've subscribed to weekly Spanish lessons. I've found collections of modern history's greatest speeches. There are entire college classes that can be downloaded onto this credit-card sized wonder.
This little shiny silver thingy with the round selector wheel and one inch screen, that I can carry in my pocket while I listen to a lecture about the history of Byzantium is the coolest thing since the internet itself.
Now if they could invent something like this that doesn't need to be plugged into and synchronized with my computer. Someday.....
