Well, you can’t let yourself get caught up in always having to have the newest, latest, greatest thing. But my timing last week was impeccable. Impeccably bad, that is. Today, Apple announced a new line of Ipod’s and dropped the price by 100 bucks. So last week I paid $399 for the 20GB. This week: it’s $299. And the 40GB – double the capacity – drops to $399. Oh, and the battery life goes from 8 to 12 hours.


Luckily, I still have one day to return mine if I really want to, but do I? I could easily just sell mine on EBay or to a friend at a slight discount if it meant me getting the upgrade. But I’m not even sure I want to. It depends on how frivilous and/or materialistic I’m feeling. We’ll see. I’m still in the process of digitizing most of my collection and I’m only up to the latter F.

Oh – the Item Five link is now working in the nav bar at the top.
