I’ll admit that the thought of owning an iPod didn’t fill me with lust. And I’ve been known to lust over lesser-known, less-interesting gadgets. An iPod, for whatever reason, just didn’t catch my fancy.
I think it was the idea of spending so much money on something that just had music and photos. Big deal.
An ad on the SciFi channel, however, changed that. Did you know that you can now buy downloads of shows like Battlestar, etc. on iTunes the day after they air? I didn’t. Now I do. And now I want an iPod.
It’s a little late in the game. I’m on the back end of the trend. And I probably won’t buy one… but I do want it.
