  8. Mythology
  9. iPhone
  10. An alternative

I’ll leave it up to you guys to click on the link for the details of each item. Don’t want to steal clicks from Silicon.com.

The article got me thinking about what it is I like about Apple and its products, the Mac and iPod. Currently I own a 12-inch 1GHz Powerbook and a 17-inch 1.83 GHz Core Duo iMac. The latter’s pretty old and the former’s old. The iMac’s not old in the chronological sense; it’s not even a year old yet. But old technology-wise. Enough of the griping.

I was thinking of selling both and get a brand spanking new machines but I couldn’t justify the cost of getting a new macbook or a new iMac. Both the Powerbook and Core Duo iMac still works fine. Maybe I can sell both and get a 15-inch Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro. Forget it. I still need to shell out a lot of moolah for that 15-inch Macbook Pro.

I’ve owned several iPods already. My first iPod was a 1st generation green iPod mini. I used it extensively and had fun in the process but the battery conked out on me but it was a good thing that the retailer agree to send it back to Apple Singapore and I got a brand new unit. I then sold it. I also had a first generation 512MB iPod shuffle. Two actually. The second one I won in a contest. I sold both. I also had a fifth generation 30GB iPod, the so-called “video iPod.” I’ve given up telling people that it’s iPod with video. That was an exercise in futility. That’s also been sold. I once got a pink 4GB nano but sold then when the red iPod came out.

I will say that using the Macs and all the iPods were fun and made me productive. That is not to say, however, that I haven’t had issues with either of the two every now and then. I will post some thoughts about that soon.
