when you don't know what to do...
do the next thing
I miss my iPod touch. I had to send it out for repair today. It's shipping over night, and will be overnighted back to me, but WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I use it for EVERYTHING. It's my companion when I work on leather projects, it keeps me company when I stand in lines, it lets me read or do crossword puzzles when I'm trying to get to sleep, it rides with me everywhere, and I HAD TO SEND IT AWWWWAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY...

The pathetisad thing is, I will totally buy another one if I have to, and then save my pennies to pay myself back. I love it THAT MUCH. I'm mulling over excuses for buying a 3G 64gb model anyway, but then I tell myself to hold out for 4G, because maybe THAT one will have a camera. That's all the touch needs to be the perfectest iPod EVAR.

I really miss my iPod. My 2G nano tries, but it's just not the same...

I know what you mean. I don't even use mine as much as you seem to use yours, but I would also be pathetisad without mine for even a day. I hope yours comes back to you soon.

I feel like a bad mommy, and I didn't even do anything wrong except buy that cheaply made cable.

Its little case is sitting on my table, so empty, so forlorn...

Ah, so you completely understand why I went straight out and replaced my iPhone. It's all of the above, plus my cell phone.

Oh, absolutely. If it had been as profoundly broken as your iPhone was, I'd have been buying a new one at the Apple Store instead of asking them to get that dang piece out of the headphone jack (which they couldn't, and thus the reason I sent it to iResq). And then I'd have kicked myself when the 3G models came out with double the capacity.

Ok, apparently I'm a Luddite and didn't even know it - I thought Ipods just played music?

The iPod touch is like the iPhone, with a touch screen and the ability to run gajillions of apps *and* play music (sometimes at the same time) -- it just doesn't have a phone or a camera.

Most iPods play video, too, BTW; the only model that doesn't is the shuffle. I wouldn't want one of the new shuffles if you paid me, though. It announces the songs and requires the use of proprietary earbuds with the controls on the cord, or at least a proprietary dongle for the controls. Having the controls on the cord means I can't control the thing under my motorcycle jacket while wearing gloves. Yeah... no thank you.

So yeah... music, but the touch does so much more, plus it has wifi capability, so I can surf and check email, though slower than I can with my laptop. It's come in handy several times, though.

Uhoh - I've been known to say that I'd love an iPhone, as long as I didn't have to have the phone part.

Good thing I can't afford it!

All it needs is a camera to make the perfect handheld device.

But... um... they sell refurbs...

Nope - we want a Wii first. >:)

Look at it this way... by the time you get the Dyson, either 4th gen will be out or the refurbs will be even cheaper, or both!
