32 GB iPod
I bought a new toy: a 32GB iPod touch. I have had a 1GB iPod shuffle for two years, but of course it doesn’t do video. I don’t listen to music as much as I do podcasts. And now I can watch MSNBC Countdown and MSNBC Rachel Maddow as well the local weather from TV3. Especially useful when I am on the Renfe Rodalies commuter trains.
I bought the iPod on-line directly from the Apple store in Spain. This model, a month after introduction, is still not in stores. And I had it in my hot hands less than 48 hours after I had ordered it. Of course shipping via UPS was free.
I have been surprised to see how many “apps” are available. In case you are wondering why I didn’t buy an iPhone instead, it’s because of the contract commitment entailed. I have very cheap mobile service with simyo. I am still working off the 10 € “bonus” I received when I signed up last February. No contract commitments, no monthly minimums. As they say: no pagas nada si no hablas nada.
