So my original IPOD Video is dying. Sucks because the warranty was over like 9 months ago, and now it wants to start acting up. The Battery is shot, there is some pixal problems on the screen, and compared to all the new ipods out, its quite outdated!
So over the weekend, I was able to do some design work for a friend of mine, that came out really hot by the way! So my cousin came over because he wanted me to charge his ipod on my computer. He has gave me his girlfriends ipod touch to charge as well. As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it! I wanted it! It was like so ME! Ya know I love high tech futuristic stuff!
So I decided to take the money from the design job and get me an ipod touch! I mean I need a new one anyway! Most of my friends know, I'm not a bigger spender, but when I want something, I WANT IT! Same with my PS3, my SIDEKICK, and now my IPOD TOUCH!
So the next day, as I was leaving the house, I was like, let me just go to radio shack and pick me up one real quick. They come in three models 8gb, 16gb, and 32gb. I refuse to pay for an ipod that is the same price for a PS3, and I already have 8gb of music as is, so I wanted the 16gb. So I get there, and ALL SOLD OUT OF THAT MODEL! What! OK fine, I looked around a couple of other stores, and nothing, they are all sold out. I get to the Mall, ALL SOLD OUT! Since when did this thing get THAT popular???
So I'm on the phone with Fuzzy, who is usually the guy that knows about my obsession of shiny techie things, and will always help me to get one. He called around a couple of places, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, they all were sold out! I was determined to get it! So I decided to just go to New York and just go to the mecca of everything ipod, the APPLE STORE NYC!
Is this not like the most magical place on earth?
The store is located in a hidden space below the crystal chamber... and there you will find loads of people looking at all kinda of ipods, iPhone, mac laptops and desktops! It is such a beauty. I went up to an employee and asked them did they have the 16gb ipod touch...
"Certainly sir, just get in line, they have them behind counters, just pick one up and your ready to go."
That's it? That is all I have to do? After 16 stores, 16 degree weather, and 16 miles of walking later, I finally had my 16 gb! Woohoo!
So I get home and just amazed at so many things this bad boy can do! I always wanted an IPhone, but can't handle typing on the thing... besides I love my Sidekick! Yet the Internet, the ability to watch YouTube, get directions and play games is awesome! It picks up on my wifi instantly, and I can even use it to as a remote control to my music on my computer, which will be great for parties!
I even organized my entire Music Library so that I can get the full effect of my ipod. Right now I'm just looking up different songs to add on here. I have PLENTY of R&B so looking for something unique and different now.
