I do not own an iPod, and until recently thought it was something one-eyed, British pirates wore.
However, now that I have read about iPod’s, I have a few questions:
Damn they are expensive. It is one thing to lose a cheapo CD player, but wow – losing, or dropping an iPod in the lake would be a bummer …aren’t people afraid to take them places for fear of being ripped off or broken or lost?
So, they can hold 8,000 songs or more. I mean, I suppose it is nice that you can store that many tunes…but seriously, who in the hell has 8,000 favorite songs?
Songs cost 99 cents each to download. Hmm….8,000 x 99 cents…now I sure as hell don’t want to lose that little machine!!! Do you really pay for these downloads or (and I promise I won’t tell anyone) or is there some kind of secret portal that lets you zap them down for free?
4th and last question. Like all technologies, the first one costs a bundle, and then – well, look at DVD players on sale now for under $35. So – how long before iPod (or rip off versions) will be at my local KMart for $9.99?
