This post isn’t about Mexico. It’s about life. And how sometimes it just sucks. In a fairly non important way, at least on this occasion. About six weeks ago I bought myself an MP3 player that I could use when out running. What I really wanted was a small MP3 player that also had a reasonable screen size and battery life, and one of the latest little pocket camcorders. So I could video and photo my marathon run. I only had enough for one, so I bought a little Sony Walkman MP3 player.
And lo and behold, a few weeks later, Apple introduces a new iPod Nano that has a bigger screen, inbuilt Nike+ support, a radio, proper podcast support….and a camera. That takes video and photos. And pretty good quality videos too, for its size. And for the same amount that I spent on my Walkman. And for about the same money I spent. Such is life. I’d like to think I could get one for my birthday, but that’ll be too late. Any ridiculously rich person out there in the habit of gifting $149 iPods for no other reason than they can….get in touch.
