    Today marks another iPod release, and yet another iPod purchase

    I now have
    -1st Gen 5gb
    -1st Gen 4gb mini silver
    -iPod Photo 40gb
    -Black 2gb nano

    And will have a 30gb Black iPod Video

    EDIT: I forgot my shuffle 512, only used as a usb key

    People of this forum and fellow mac devotees, do i have a iPod problem?

    no because you never bought 2G or 3G iPod, nor a 2G mini, nor a shuffle

    I'd say so. I know there is a lot of us caught up in having the latest and greatest, so we can get a bit carried away. You have a lot of iPods. Sell what you dont use, and enjoy the video Pod. To me it all about the music, so im gonna stick with the nano for now.

    That Explains my problem and my solution.

    The girlfriend makes fun of me because she says I'm addicted to technology I say at least it ain't booze, cheating with other women, drugs or eating

    Not sure if you have a problem. To me, the new iPod is the first one that doesn't appeal to me much. The thin profile and better battery life are nice, but don't really grab me. The video capability would be useless to me. The nano, on the other hand, is attractive to me. I am considering buying one to tape to my cellphone :).

    Trust me I do enjoy booze and i far exceed the binge drinking amount on almost every friday and saturday during the semester i would however say i'm not "addicted". Computers on the other hand, i follow like a fiend, and spend ungodly amounts of money i earn from working that should go to other things like rent and food or hey maybe paying off my loans when i graduate..........anyway I'm going to look at the receipt for my iPod again

    If you have the spare cash it's up to you what you do with it! If iPods are your drug of choice then wheres the harm?!

    Although if you're getting in to debt to buy them then that wouldn't be so good!

    Of course, if you're loaded then maybe sell a few of them and give the proceeds to charity!

    I ordered a white 60GB version, to replace my 3rd Gen 20GB which is now being passed on to my sister as a semi christmas present (i'll buy her something else too..seems a bit mean to give something i've been using for two years as her only gift :p )

    As long as you can pay for it, and aren't building credit card debt, then you don't have a problem.

    Compulsiveness isn't a problem is it? Of course that money could have multiplied several times over in some energy stocks by now. Well, Steve's portfolio benefitted anyway.

    The tech cycle is so frantic. There's no perfected form of the product - e.g., a book - paper and some covers, more or less it, not going to change it. Even most other items that are re-invented and improved have such a longer shelf-life: cars, houses, appliances, other consumer electronics like good stereo components or your TV. You're in a marketing blackhole from which it is difficult for dollars to escape.

    True, but when you start spending more time with your technology gadgets than her, she will be jealous. :eek: :eek: Make sure you always spend enough time with the, uhh, software in your life. ;)

    I've got a case of buyers remorse right now too, but not enough to terminate the purchase. I just dropped $1400 on a new iMac when I already have one (using this new one as my media center) where I needed a TV and could have bought a nice LCD HDTV.

    Not to mention my desk looks insanely knotty now. I've got an iMac on one side of the desk, PowerBook on the other and soon-to-be iMac mouted on the wall in the corner.

    The curse of Apple! Look what you have done to me Steve! I am an animal!

    Perfectly normal. I have 5 iPods, myself, and I consider myself a pretty normal person. :D

    I'm just wondering - why? Which of those do you actually use? I have a mini and a shuffle, and I use both (shuffle for running, mini at all other times). I wouldn't get a new ipod of any kind without selling one of these (probably the mini, as nothing really replaces the shuffle) because I have no need for anything beyond 1 running ipod and 1 everyday use ipod.

    I mean... with a new video ipod, will you ever turn on the ipod photo again? do you ever use the mini over the nano? Do you use the 1st generation at all? :confused:

    I have a 30gb 3g and a shuffle.

    the 4g didnt do much for me...but this one, with battery life, larger color screen, thinner, and of course video, really has got me sold already. So, sell the 3g and the shuffle, and get the 60gb. Nice comprimise.

    do u have them all or do you sell them to put money towards a new ipod. I don't know why you need so many, but if you got the cash why not....
