    I was strolling through the mall over the weekend and was totally surprised to see that the ipod was being sold in a place i wouldn't even have thought about! Foley's! They were only selling the 20GB and 40GB ipods. Prices are same as apple's. But still, I wouldn't have expected it there.

    heh, pretty soon they'll be at Sam's Clubs!

    it happened to Mont Blanc (one of the fanciest pen brands in the world... talking $150 for a pen... i have one that was over $400)

    Wow, is the pen really worth $400 in productivity? Does it look that nice?

    For $400, I'd get Gary Coleman to mow my lawn.

    Two people on my track team have iPods. I also have one, so that's 3 iPods in a team of roughly 45 people. All are 15GB versions. I have the most music at 10GB.

    I was walking through the electronics department of a Target the other day and was shocked to see a floor model iPOD, I had no idea that target sells or ever did sell them.

    or a killer, dual lazer, 12 inch compound miter saw... with accessories

    or a fixed router AND a plunge router

    I could go on and on..

    I love nice pens, but cannot bring myself to buy one for over 30 dollars. I have more practicle things that I would want to get. Like a pen lathe, make my own pens. the wood is pretty cheap.

    I live on the lamest college campus ever. Only three people here own iPods. But it does allow me to soak up even more of the iPod envy...
