Yesterday was my birthday, and I asked for an iPod. Everyone said it was too expensive, so they sent me checks. I have enough to cover it, but having the straight up money, I feel I should put it toward bills/rent/food/etc. $350 plus a case, plus the apple care is a lot of money, how can I justify spending it? Right now I have a 30gig Creative Zen Nomad Jukebox which is old, has poor battery life, kind of clumsy menus, not great integration with my MBP, but it still plays my music. I want the iPod for its better menus, search functions, easily updateable, USB2, Video, and Photos. I work retail at a Bicycle shop, and this is the SLOOOOOOOOOOW time of year for us, so I figure I can watch some Law and Order on it when we go 4 hours without seeing a customer. I guess technically I could do that on my palm Treo, but I'd have to get bigger memory cards, and they only come up to 1gig, and the L&O season is 7gigs. There are also lots of fun accessories out there for iPods. What should I do?
