I broke down last week and bought an iPod. I kept looking at all of the mp3 players out there and trying to decide which one to get. I figured if I was going to spend the money for the ones that I decided were what I liked I might as well get an iPod. So far it's been a lot of fun. It reminds me a lot of having a Barbie doll as a kid though. You (I) want to keep getting accessories for it. Now I spend my time up/downloading music. It's fun. And, the bonus is, everything I listen to, I like!
