This past friday I finally joined the ranks and purchased an iPod on E-bay.
Don’t get me wrong, I already had an MP3 player. A Sansa to be exact, but this little fellow that I’ve had for the past 2 years has recently started crapping out on me. Some songs I put on it don’t show up in the playlist, yet when I sync it up on the computer, they show up in the files, so that doesn’t make sense. On saturday, I was running some errands and I was listening to “What A Fool Believes” by The Doobie Brothers through the cassete adapter I have for my car, and I paused the song since I had to get out of the car.
After I get back in to continue it, I turn it back on, press play and get in glaring red letters BAD TRACK. This happens to several other songs I put on there as well. I was nice and pissed about it, but I remembered that I had just purchased an iPod the previous day, and that this wouldn’t be a problem much longer once it comes in.
It’s an 80GB Sixth generation, so it’s a more recent model. I haven’t been really up to date with iPods, and I’ve never really ben much into Apple in general, save for an interest in the iPhone and a previous vague interest in the iPod that has grown exponentially. I know I’ll never favor Macs. I’m going to stay with Windows based software, plus I don’t really dig the layout on Mac computers. I’ve got great virus software, so I know I’m safe for the time being, even though I hear Macs are really impervious to viruses. So far anyway.
I’ve heard a lot of great things about iPods for a long time now, and I like how it’s format of the “wheel” and the back track forward track, pause, and play are very similar to my Sansa. I also like that it’s got games I can play. I picked up a Zune at a pawnshop, but it was messed up, and I didn’t really like the button format. Plus I heard about that big update fiasco that had me suspicious about them now. This is going to be a good thing once it comes in, and I’m really looking forward to finally being able to have one.

Thanks for reading my blog and see you next time!
When filming “I Love Lucy” producers used tactics to make Ethel, Lucy’s foil, uglier on screen than she was in real life. This was done to put the focus on Lucy. A similar tactic seems to have been used in 2020’s Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, by not giving any of the supporting actresses … Continue reading — By Sushi-X
