My first confession, I do not even own an iPod in the traditional sense. All I have been able to acquire in the several-odd years since the pod people landed, was a measly shuffle pod.
But man do I love that shuffle pod. I put it in my pocket and bike to work or take the subway, and I’m rocking out the whole time. So I don’t know what song is coming up next, that’s the thrill of life man! So you can imagine how bummed I was when my inadequately sized shuffle pod ceased to work.
At first I thought about turning this post into a “Fundraiser for DigiDave to buy a New iPod Post.” But I figured that was abusing my privilege as your guide to the world of technology.
Instead I propose a discussion of sorts.
Should I A: Try and get a full refund, replacing my shuffle pod with a new one.
B: Turn in my shuffle pod and demand to get a deal on a new (and real) iPod.
Obviously the crowd is favoring B. But here is the question. Do I dare go for the Nano? My only hesitations are
A: I hear it breaks easily and the shuffle pod, which seems study, obviously isn’t hard to damage either. I simply can’t get attached to another pod creature only to have it die on me. I don’t have the emotional reserve for that.
B: Maybe I’m weird that this bothers me, but you can’t find any images of the Nano on a google image search. WTF?
I hope you enjoyed my long musings. Please feel free to comment on what you think I should do (Note: I am poor, blogging doesn’t exactly pay the bills, so don’t suggest that I should buy both, and a 40 gig while I’m at it). I’m interested in what other tech-peeps would do in my situation. Go for the Nano I presume.
