I did something that I used to think I would never do. I bought an iPod. I’ve changed my mind on it at least 3 times in the past couple of days, but I finally placed the order today.

I’ve gotten the idea of getting an mp3 player in my mind several times over the past few years, but I always change my mind. I really don’t need one. All the stuff I can do on an iPod I can do on other devices. I can even do it better on other devices. However, the iPod has a convenience factor and a coolness factor. Although I am rarely in situations where I have to use the iPod, I’m sure I will WANT to use it once I have it.

At one point I thought that I would buy a Zune if I bought any mp3 player. I’m kinda anti-Apple lately. I changed my mine on getting a Zune after a friend of mine got an iPod. I’ve already ripped all of my CDs to my hard drive using iTunes. I still don’t understand why people get so excited over iTunes. It is something awful. I’ll have to get used to it I guess. I’ve also started organizing the mp3s I already had. I can see myself obsessing over this for many hours, but it’ll be great to be able to listen to any of my songs whenever I want.

I’m excited about finally making it into the 21st century in this area. It should be here by the end of the week. I think I’m going to buy some accessories today.

  • I got my video ipod back in Feb and love it! When the first ipod came out I looked at all the mp3’s and went with the Zen Micro by Creative. I loved that one as well. Making playlist and burning Cd’s was so easy. I agree about iTunes I don’t know why people think it so great! I could do way more with Creative’s software. And the only thing that I didn’t like about my Zen Micro was all the accessories are made for ipods and I LOVE accessories. So when I upgraded that was the only reason why I went with ipod. If I had known what iTunes was liked I may not have made that choice again.
