It's true... I was chatting to some friends the other day about the upcoming Macworld. When I mentioned that I was hopeful for updated iPods, one of my friends asked me (somewhat as a joke) how many iPods I had purchased over the years. I counted them up and it was 23 !! I posted this to the other Apple forum site that I frequent and got such a good response that I decided to share my story here too. Here's my list of 23 iPod purchases. If you're interested in the full backstory, you can check out my story here: http://torants.blogspot.com/2007/01/cupertino-i-may-have-problem-pre.html Anyway - here's the list... 1. December 2001 My 1st!! the Original White 5 Gig iPod 2. April 2002 Sold my Original (I still regret selling it) and purchased the White 10 Gig iPod 3. August 2002 Sold my 10 Gig and picked up the White 20 Gig 4. April 2003 Upgraded my 20 Gig to the new White 20 Gig with solid state scroll wheel and four buttons 5. September 2003 Upgraded from the 20 Gig to the White 40 Gig with solid-state scroll wheel and four buttons. This iPod still holds a special place in my heart as it represented the first time I was able to have all of my music on my iPod. At the time, I had about 32 Gigs of music. 6. February 2004 Purchased a Green 4 Gig iPod Mini as a gift for my wife. Due to huge demand in the US, the mini was not available to be ordered in Canada yet. I purchased this iPod on E-Bay and had it shipped to a friends address in Boston and then had my friend ship it up to me. 7. April 2004 Bought my 1st iPod Mini for myself. I ordered a Pink one online from the Apple Store. I got an E-Mail telling me that it would ship in 1-2 weeks (see below.) 8. March 2004 I was in my local Best Buy and saw that they had a Pink Mini in stock. I bought it and rushed home to cancel my online order. Just my luck Apple had shipped it early. I ended up selling the one that Apple shipped to me (still sealed) to a friend who was looking to buy one. 9. July 2004 Upgraded to the white 40 Gig with Click Wheel 10. December 2004 Upgraded to the White 60 Gig iPod Photo. This was my most expensive iPod purchase ever at $749 Canadian. I almost skipped this one but decided to treat myself after receiving a pretty sweet bonus that year. 11. January 2005 Purchased the 512 Meg Shuffle (just because!!) 12. February 2005 Upgraded my Mini to the new 6 Gig version 13. September 2005 Upgraded from my mini to the new Nano (the 4 Gig version in White) 14. October 2005 Upgraded to the White 60 Gig iPod with Video 15. April 2006 Bought a Black 30 Gig iPod with Video as a gift for my wife 16. June 2006 Bought a 1 Gig White Nano for my father-in-law as a Birthday gift 17. July 2006 Bought a 1 Gig White Nano for myself. (I was convinced that new Nano would be announced in the June timeframe so I had recently sold my 4 Gig version. When Apple and Nike came out with the Nike+ system though, I had to pick up a small Nano just so I could use their new running system until the new line of Nanos arrived.) 18. September 2006 Upgraded to the Black 80 Gig iPod Video 19. September 2006 Upgraded to the new 2nd Generation Nano (a 4 Gig Pink one) 20. October, 2006 I decided that the new Product Red Nano was much cooler than my Pink one so I upgraded to the 4 Gig Red Nano. 21. December 2006 Bought a White 30 Gig iPod with Video as a Christmas gift for my parents 22. December 2006 I purchased a 1 Gig 2nd Generation Shuffle for a local United Way Charity Silent Auction. (It sold for more than I paid for it!) 23. December 2006 I decided to purchase the new 1 Gig 2nd Generation for myself too. How many iPods have you bought over the years?
