How long has the iPod been around? Five Years? I don't know.
Over the weekend, I bought my first iPod.
My wife, who prefers to go unnamed, had a birthday. For years, I've been trying to talk her into an iPod. She always said she didn't want anything that was a device. This year, she mentioned iPod before I did. So I got her one.
First, I had to learn how to do it and then I could show her how to do it. I got iTunes and turned it on. It was brilliant. But I didn't know what to do first, or how. I'm always like that with new things. I struggled and did everything the hard way.
Eventually, it clicked and I saw iTunes in the Sky, there to help me in every way.
So, now, I'm teaching my wife and she's getting it.
Today, I came home and she said she'd bought 20 tunes for 99 cents each. I began to see the dark side of iTunes.
Luckily, our kids had thrown in an iTunes Gift Card, along with their best birthday wishes, so there was no shortage of funds. But, you know how it goes. A Gift Card here, a Gift Card there, and when they run out, you're talking about real money.
Anyway, I asked my wife if I could publish her playlist, but she declined.
