    Or any other piece of apple goodness that you own.
    I call my iPhone Bigmoney, my 3g nano Sir Chester, and my half working mini Ol' Faithful

    Are you going to hold a funeral for your named gadgets when they stop working or you get a newer model? :rolleyes:

    Didn't we have some other thread like this already? I think I said my iPod names were classified. But, I lied.

    Well let's see, I can probably only remember a few of them without rounding them up for a roll call but I will share what comes to mind

    BrightShinyThings - a pink mini with dance tracks and mix lists from 2004
    OrangeBaby - a shuffle, 2nd gen with some picks for May on it
    Portulaca - an 8Gb iPod touch with a magenta incase on it.
    Catbird - my iPhone still wearing its bright yellow winter Incase plumage
    MoreBartók - original u2 special edition and it does have U2 on it plus a lot of Bartók (and a lot of Bach and some Prokofiev) on it
    TheseFastCars - i think this is my other u2 one but i am not sure what's on it right now, TV shows I think.
    PesoPlato - latino picks and inexplicably, i noticed last week, some Hindemith and three Bill Charlap jazz takes on West Side Story
    LentilSoup - green mini with old faves on it
    Bluebook - blue 2nd gen refurb nano with mix lists from Feb, Mar, April
    ArrozBlanco - white nano 1st gen, mostly Latin dance tracks right now
    BlakkittyBlak - a 1st gen shuffle with whatever faves i had then plus a few updates thrown into the mix now and then
    BlueDatsun - another 1st gen shuffle, i love those early shuffles!!
    NewFrontier04 - clickwheel 40Gb, has my audiobooks and Charlie Rose on it
    EditionSpéciale - black 8Gb 3rd gen nano, video podcasts and recently acquired music usually, plus favorite apple ads etc.

    iPhone - John's iPhone
    iPod - John's iPod
    iMac - Macintosh HD


    I don't see the need to name hunks of metal.

    What do I call my iPhone and/or iPod(s)?

    Uh...

    The iPhone is....My iPhone (!)

    I have an older iPod Nano which is called...."my Nano" and a 5G iPod which I call "my iPod....."

    My computers are also similarly creatively named:

    "Mac Pro"
    "MacBook Pro 17 inch" (Core 2 Duo)
    "MacBook Pro 15 inch" (Core Duo)
    "iMac" (G5 Rev B)
    "MacBook Air"

    :D
