we bought an iPod Touch.

September 17th, 2008 · 8 Comments

ipod touch We finally caved and bought an iPod Touch. However, after using it for less than a week, I’m really not too sure that we’ll keep it. Besides its obvious niceities — design, convenience, etc., I’m not bowled over and already have a couple of minor grumbles:

Unless you can pick up a wireless signal, most apps aren’t accessible. We had planned to store some self-made maps on it so we could navigate around Paris and Amsterdam, only to discover that you can’t even view them without being online! So now we’re back to square one. Bummer!

And forget speed reading. The iPod screen can barely fit a complete sentence on one line. In fact, it probably can’t fit a complete sentence on one line. So if I want to read something (without straining my eyes), I have to expand/subtract the area and then shuffle the screen around just to get through one paragraph (although I admit if I had a 3G network with seamless Internet access, I could probably overlook this imperfection). I know, I know, all signs point to the iPhone.

Despite my discontent, we’re still in the honeymoon phase, and I’m hoping our wily gadget will redeem itself and charm its way into my heart. It’s coming with us to Europe (and we’ll hopefully write some blog posts while we’re traveling), but it’s fate in our household is yet to be determined.

    Just remember that being prosperous on your endeavor also
    signifies that time, work and patience is required.
    If you have paid attention to the first five ways
    to make people like you, you are probably noticing a trend.
    For most of these, I paid less than five dollars each, which
    actually turned out to be cheaper than paper centerpieces with the character.

    Talk About It Interestingly enough, we seem to think that our
    websites only belong on the internet. Multiple DNS hosting is also generally
    presented on Search engine optimisation internet hosting
    internet sites. While looking for a company you must check out its location whether it is located
    in a metro area or not because famous companies usually like to be
    established at reputed areas.

    Thanks for the several tips provided on this blog site.

    I have realized that many insurance carriers offer shoppers generous reductions if they elect to insure a few cars together.
    A significant amount of households possess several motor vehicles these days, specially those with more aged teenage
    youngsters still located at home, and also the savings with policies might soon
    begin. So it will pay to look for a good deal.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see
    if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However just imagine if
    you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this site could definitely be one of the very best in its
    field. Excellent blog!
