iPod iPod iPod iDunno

OK. I'm usually not materialistic. But I've had my eye on a new iPod. I think it would cheer up my commutes. I'm sick of KTAR's "Detour Dan," the same five country songs (seriously KNIX...play some older stuff or at least mix in some Garth Brooks or Alan Jackson), and I am done listening to local pundits predict what's going to happen during the next debate (no really. I'm done. Because, well, so are the debates...).

I've justified buying an iPod in my mind. But...they're so expensive. And I'd have to choose. Do I get a touch? A nano? An iPod classic? It's all so confusing.

How can I expect to know what I want in life if I can't even decide what I want in a portable electronic device?

Free got an 80 gig classic Ipod and it is so great it holds so much he can put tv shows on and everything, but he has some of his fave books on and then he adds more books all the time plus he has music and he has scriptures on it, so I say if you are going to get one go for the big one you will not regret it. Plus Jeff my Mom and Free all got Refurbished ones from the Ipod store online, they still have the same warranty and everything and they are cheaper! None of them has had a problem with theirs, something to consider. Good luck!

yeah i would suck it up and go for the 80 gig. Ask for it for your graduation and birthday parents from mom and dad, mom was just telling me she didn't know what to get you. That'd be an awesome gift and then tell me what you want for your birthday, I'm dying here.

Dave, Dad needs an ipod to for his birthday. So please do all the research. I love, love, love listening to the scriptures on my ipod on my walks. You get to hear the whole story and the narrators are pretty good.

I have an 80g and I haven't filled it up yet. I love it, before I always had to take something off my ipod to add a new book or playlist. I have lots of books, music, scriptures, pictures, movies, conference, churc mag. on and on-- It's great! Yesterday they finally made Oct conference available for mp3, I was so happy, I had been checking everyday. Now I can listen to conference while I work around my house. Go for the 80 you won't regret it. Jeff found me a refurbished one from Apple, it came with a guarantee and has worked great, saved a lot of money.
