hello nano

September 6, 2007

in college i finally rationalized the purchase of an ipod mini and was secretly excited to finally be a part of the apple family. however, my timing was horrible, [though not as bad as it was for the more recent iphone buyers], because the nano was released 2 weeks later and i was a bit pissed to have purchased a product that soon became obsolete. oh well. i got over it and its been a glorious few years. we’ve run a few races, been on many a road trip, and traveled internationally together.

through a series of strange events over the weekend, i killed my mini. never, ever plug your PC compatable ipod into a mac for a quick charge. it will cost you $130 bucks to fix, or at least thats what the applecare folks told me on the phone last night.

reluctantly i looked at the apple website to consider my options and realized my timing couldn’t be more perfect, compared with a couple years ago.

its sort of weird looking but i am planning on getting one (with 10% off for recycling my beloved mini) over the weekend when the apple store in town gets them in. any thoughts?
