iPods 'Shuffle'

I usually try to wait longer than two years to recycle a gadget, and with rumors that the iPod Touch would eventually get a camera, I thought about waiting at least until next summer, but truth to tell, I've built up such a large music library between twenty-five years of CDs and however long I've been on eMusic, and there's not enough room on my original iPod Touch. So I broke down and got a 64GB one today.

Renee inherited the first one, which was a 16GB G1. She surrendered her nano (also inherited from me), so that I could get the 10% discount. That was my price for giving her my old unit.

One observation I'll make is that while the iPod Touch still doesn't do some of the things I used to use my PalmPilot for, it has come along far enough that I don't use the Palm at all any more. It sits in a drawer in the den.

The other observation I'll make is that I've always had a habit of naming my computers, including PDAs, after anime characters, usually female. I haven't watched an anime show regularly for several months now, so I'm out of options. Instead, I decided to name this one after my penpal Nami. Hi, Nami! We got the shirts you sent, and Renee is going to wear one of them. Surprise, even a Japanese XL is too small for me.

Hi,Phin! I'm sorry the t-shirt is small for you. (-_-;) I want to see the photos of Renee who wears a t-shirt.

Nami,

I was happy to receive them from you. If you don't mind, I will offer the two smaller shirts to some of my smaller friends (Alan and his fiance, Pia, or perhaps James, who is a giant robot/Gundam fan).

As for the one Renee chose, I'm just waiting for her to do a 'delicates' load of laundry, and then I'll have her pose and put the results on Flickr.

Thanks once again for the thoughtful present. I promise I will try to find something interesting for you.
