Well, my good ol’ Mini is close to four years old. I purchased it November 2004 for Php 15,000! iPods cost that much several years ago. I was surprised (and secretly pleased) to learn prices have gone down since I bought my Mini.
I thought long and hard whether I will need a new one. My best friend Cheryl convinced me that I need an MP3 player for the gym so people would not talk to me or when I need to listen to Joel Osteen’s podcasts while on travel. Now those are very valid reasons. I set aside money from my SSS loan in case I do end up wanting one.
Due to an unexpected development last Friday, and my EQ was low; I set off to buy a replacement for my iPod mini. I originally was intending to buy a Nano but with a bigger memory of 8GB.
And then my husband intervened and encouraged me to buy the next one on the hierarchy list of iPod -- the iPod Classic with 80GB memory. It could be bribery..
I dared not argue with him. I immediately walked to the nearest PowerMac Center and purchased a silver iPod Classic.
Oh, it is beautiful.
When I reached home, I plugged it in to our laptop and it transferred all 600+ songs and my saved Joel Osteen podcasts from my iTunes. Not only songs and podcasts, it also synced photos from My Pictures. I was pleased to see 800 plus of our wedding photos transferred automatically! Now, it is easier to share photos with others. There is no need to bring a bulky laptop.
A new feature I explored is Videos. I had no idea that the new iPod Classic replaced the iPod Video until my brother pointed it out to me. I was even more delighted with my new toy. Since I do not have any file of any movie or TV show, I immediately loaded our on site wedding AVP. Even if I have seen that so many times, I watched it over and over again. Somehow it looked better on the small screen of the iPod. I am in the process of downloading season 4 of Grey's Anatomy which is a test of my patience as it is taking a LONG time. Oh I will reap the fruits of my labor soon.
Jed was as pleased as I. He even tried it before I did. I did not mind at all.
I'm happy I listened to him and I am enjoying this iPod because of him.
