I spent the morning trying to determine what I was going to do about my deceased former iPod. I could take it to the Apple Store and see what they recommended, but that's not smart. Every time I enter that store I use more and more willpower not to buy an iPhone, which could act as my phone and iPod in one place. But I need an iPhone like I need a hole in my head. The phone I have now, a Samsung Blackjack, works just fine, thank you.
1. The Blackjack can't synch up with my MacBook. So, I have to enter every calendar item twice if I want it to be mobile.
2. The iPhone would probably end up costing me $600 with a bluetooth headset, car charger, the monthly plan fee and the fact AT&T will not subsidize me (the rotten scumbags).
3. The iPod Touch can synch with my MacBook and hold my music, contacts and calendar.
So . . . drumroll please . . . meet the newest techie toy in my arsenal. Looks like an iPhone but it's not! This is what $229 bought me. The 8GB iPod touch. Very handsome, isn't he?
