I have been a long time user of my iPod. I first bought one about three years ago – a silver 4GB Nano. It held most of my music and more importantly introduced me to the world of podcasts. I learned so much from podcasts. I was entertained, informed and it made me more mellow. I actually don’t mind waiting as much. I am calmer when I drive and listen to a podcast.
About a year ago, my Nano ended up in my iced tea. It didn’t work for a week and so I went out and bought a Gold 8GB long Nano. The new Nano’s are great and it held ALL my music collection plus podcasts. Eventually my old Nano dried out and began to work again. So I gave it to my son because his iPod Shuffle didn’t have a screen. He likes the Nano better.
This week I’ve been borrowing an iPod Touch from my school library. I’ve been helping them tech out. She got a dozen of them to begin the eBook transition in our library. But I’d never used one and could only help her so much. So, she asked me if I wanted to borrow it for the summer to figure it out. So, I’ve been using it and loving it.
I need an iPod Touch. I have been delving into apps, eBooks and mobile surfing. I love being able to access the Net by Wi-Fi at school, home and Starbucks. I love being able to read eBook apps for FREE. There are so many great books available as free apps. But I also like being able to access my email, rss reader and so much more. I’m addicted.
I think I will be shelling out some money after the summer is over to get one of these fun and useful little gagets.
