Fiscal Responsibility

I received an e-mail today letting me know that my financial aid for this semester will be deposited into my bank account within the next few days. Now, the question is, do I buy a new iPod now, or wait until the funds have been distributed?

Let's see... later = No iPod :(

Now =

Why is everyone so gaga over this device? Do you need to listen to music all the time?

Spoken like a non-iPodder, Igots.

I wouldn't say I need to listen to music all the time, but there is something liberating about having literally your entire music library on something that is smaller than a deck of cards. Plus, now w/ the color video screen, you can watch videos (albeit on a tiny screen) and bring some or all of your digital photos whereever you go.

Other than TiVo, the iPod is probably the coolest gadget to have. Until you have it, you just wouldn't understand.

But UM - you don't have one, yet you seem to understand perfectly. Didn't the LSAT teach you not to make these kinds of mistakes?

Anonymous, I believe the LSAT (or at least law school) also teaches you not to make assumptions, which you did by assuming that I do not have an iPod.

While, in fact, I do have an iPod, one of the now completely obsolete, monochrome screened, non-photo showing, non-video playing models which only came in pitiful white instead of sleak, sexy black. That is why I said this would be a "new" iPod.

This "new" iPod is to replace my current, or "old" iPod, which my wife keeps stealing to take to work, leaving me tune-free several days out of the week.

So you see, it is completely logical that I would understand the awesomeness that is "iPod."

Why don't you buy your wife something instead of making her steal an obsolete piece of junk from you like she's some sort of street person?

I don't know many people who would seriously refer to a 40 Gig iPod as "an obsolete piece of junk" (except, apparently you, Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous).

But since you must now, Mr. Nosey-Anonymous (are you the same Anonymous?) my wife doesn't care about the video/digital-photo aspects of the color screen, and doesn't care whether it is a black iPod (like I want) or a white one. For her, she just likes listening to music. Me, I'm a tech geek and love having the newest version.
