This post isn’t even vaguely search related. It is, however, Ipod related.
I have an Ipod. I love my Ipod. It is, without doubt, the coolest thing I own.
When I was considering buying a music player, some music-gadget obsessed friends offered a wealth of well-meaning advice. “No”, they said, “don’t get an Ipod because it can’t do xyz, unlike the XRX2000 (or whatever), which can do so much more! More stuff! Oh, and the Ipod is overpriced”. Those weren’t the exact words, but that was the jist.
They were probably right, but the problem is: I don’t care.
I knew that if I bought anything else, I’d always think “yeah, but it’s not an Ipod”. The Ipod is great, not because of its’ features, but the way its’ features are organized. Everything is in the right place. It feels right. It is just so…usable.
And it is a joy to use.
There aren’t many consumer electronics you can say that about…
