So, Friday Oct 27 my newly batteried (due to the apple battery settlement) 3rd gen ipod (Micropod) fell a full 3 feet off my desk at work as I was packing to leave and landed on its head. Sadly (electronics usually do pretty well with me), it now makes an unhappy grinding noise noise with a click every couple of seconds. I’m really quite sad about it.

I had been threatening to get a nano since they came out, and I figured I might as well get the (Product) Red ipod in red — especially since I won’t be attending Oprah’s show and get one under my seat any time in the foreseeable future. Ten bucks is donated to to the global fund to fight AIDS in Africa. I have to say, I’m pretty happy about that, and the little red thing itself. It will be nice to have a much more spritely music player for the bike/muni ride downtown, and its red without being the empire strikes back black and red of that u2 ipod. Its only 4gB, but it fits a surprisingly large amount of music (after having the 30gB for so long). As a friend said, summing up my independent tentative conclusion on the matter – you either get one that fits everything, or you get the super-portable. Oh yeh, and it’s also nice to have the scroll-wheel device with the tactile feedback — the buttons on the 3rd gen were starting to not really function well anymore…
