I'll Trade You My First Child For An iPad

This is what my iPod looked like after Ed dismantled it. The screws holding it together were teeny-tiny, like screws from eyeglasses. We thought maybe we would see the dried up Diet Coke in there and be able to swab it off, rescuing the iPod from it's Splenda-laden grave.

It never went back on. Even after plugging it in and trying to give it some juice. I thought maybe the battery died and it just needed a little boost to be rejuvenated. No such luck.

So on Sunday night, sneaky little Ed bought me a new one online, which we picked up yesterday at the local Best Buy. He also purchased a two-year protection plan to go along with it, just in case I get near any liquids in the near future. I am usually pretty careful with my electronics but that freak accident really made me gun-shy.

The best thing about the new iPod is that it has 64GB of storage - so I can put all of my movies on it (I currently have 12 of them) and Season 1 of Glee which I plan on buying soon. I never wanted an iPod and I didn't think I needed one. I figured I'd never use it. But now that I have it, I love it. I can only imagine the love for the iPad being even grander.

Are there any gadgets any of you have that you love more than say, your first born??

My two favorite material possessions are my iPhone and my iPod. Not that I need one, but I'd love to add an iPad to that list.

Congrats on the new iPod. Sneaky Ed rocks.

My sweetie bought me an MP3 player a few years ago for xmas and it was the best thing ever. It wasn't an iPod but it was exactly what I needed. It had FM radio, 8G hard drive, recording options, and the like. I used and still use the hell out of it.

I am obsessed with my iPhone, which is also kind of an iPod. I have never done movies or videos but I should... huh?

I truly want an iPad, just so I can look cool in the truck stop restaurants ;) but I can't spend that kind of money on another gadget so soon after finally having paid off the laptop!

After spending the better part of a saturday taking the toilet up from the floor to get my wifes phone out of it I learned to always have the protection plan!

I don't have an "i" anything cause I don't care for apple, but I do love my Android phone! I'm actually buying the newest one friday! :D
