I've been noticing that on my days off from my University I spend a lot of time on my Macbook. It usually starts when I wake up and check my emails in the bathroom. Yep I admit, I surf and turf. Then after I shower and if I've got nothing important going on, which on my days off most likely there isn't I'll just crash on my couch and surf for the web. At times for hours and i've been noticing mostly for at least an hour. This will consist of killing time surfing the web (digg mainly and google news) and also of listening to music on iTunes, read PDF files of mine from my documents folder and watch movies from my movies folder. I spend most of my time on my Mac just "wasting away" in a sense and the rest of the time doing homework on it, writing essays on Word, school stuff, etc. So I'm wondering if others either spend too much with their Mac in any respect: surfing the web or even if you're completely productive all the time with it. This situation has made me consider purchase an iPod Touch. I'd go for the 1st Gen and it just seems with a Touch I could still do the same things I'd do on my Mac here at home, except with the problem of having a big Macbook on my lap, or wherever. Mainly since the Touch is handheld I could be more productive and only work on the required apps I should be looking at rather than clicking from one website to another on firefox... Essentially what I think I'm asking if for advice if you think getting an ipod touch would help in my quest to not spend so much time at home on my Mac, online, etc. The touch just seems like a good alternative to living a life without a computer, and only opening the Macbook when it is really needed, like writing an essay in Word. your thoughts?
