‘Tis been a busy few days, as much significant academic business has been transpiring. I can say little about it just now, I’m afraid, but I’ll post about it as soon as I can.
Among such professional matters, however, I’ve managed to take the time to — gulp! — buy an iPod. Oh, it was a difficult decision. Back in September I bought a cheap Sony mp3 thingy to test the waters in this realm, but I didn’t like it at all. So then I bought a brand-new 80Mb Zune. It was good and bad. I loved the player’s menu system, which was far superior to that on the iPod’s I’d played with. But, alas, the on-computer software was horrid. Pretty but useless. So, after much deliberation, it went back. I thought all was lost.
But then … ah, then I discovered the iPod Touch. Wow. I mean, it’s wonderful. A true work of art, with a terrific menu system — and wifi! Holy smokes!
Never thought I’d own some electronic fruit, but there it is: I own an Apple.
