The iPod Tail that wags the Apple dog chronicles:
Taking another step into boutiquedom, Apple has open a store in NY that operates 24/7. So, if you have the Urge (please resist...) to buy an IPOD in the A.M., the store will be waiting.
I believe I've mentioned in previous posts the trouble in finding a eBook battery in these places of dubious value, the IPOD Boutique (use to be known as the Apple Store).
No one needs a device that stores 15,000 of your favorite songs to carry along with you. Especially at .99 cents a pop. That's 15,000 dollars of music in a $400 plus device. Do The Math.
Okay, I must admit that most of the owners of the 50 million such devices apple has sold in 4 1/2 years has 15,000 songs in them. Some may be pirated.... Yeah, even on the Apple of your Ear.
The Nike tie-in with IPOD Nano, technolgically speaking, seems more practical.
Would I take an IPOD as a Gift?
Sure, I just read how you can install Yellow Dog Linux on it... Link is HERE !
But hey, now you can also Watch "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives" on your IPOD.
Talk about being lost and desperate.
