I am a Shuffle user. It works for me as jewelry and I like the fact that it removes a certain amount of control from my hands and adds some serendipity to life. Whenever I borrow my daughter's Mini I start going crazy, trying to do all the stuff I can't do on my Shuffle.
In general I love my Shuffle but there are some things that really, really bug me about it, number one being that I can only use it on my home computer and not my two other computers. Now, I know you can do things to your computers and Ipod to fix this -- complicated things that you read about on geek web sites -- but I don't want to have to do that. I just want to be able to use my Ipod on my three computers with no hassle.
I also want Apple to include a regular charger with every Ipod they sell so that the thing can be charged anywhere not just on my ONE HOME computer. And I don't want to pay an exorbitant price for their charger. While I was on vacation in the USA, I noticed some entrepreneurial type had set up Ipod charging booth in the middle of the mall and I didn't know whether to be happy that he was providing this service or pissed off that we need it.
But enough about the downside of the Ipod, which in general is a creation that makes life a lot better. Let's have some Ipod fun. Confess. What are the three songs on your Ipod that you're embarrassed about and what are three songs on your Ipod that you'd be happy to discuss with the hero of High Fidelity?
- Hands Clean by Alanis Morissette
- You're Beautiful by James Blunt
- I'd be Surprisingly Good for You (From the musical Evita)
- Because the Night by Patti Smith
- No woman No Cry by Bob Marley
- Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell (her incredible most recent version)
