Slow seduction

I a m s o t e m p t e d b y t h e i P o d N a n o

Until yesterday, I had lived in blissful ignorance of the global phenomenon that is the iPod. iPod, what's that, I scoffed. Any mp3 player would serve my purpose. I remained indifferent to the wave of people rushing towards making the iPod a best seller. Then yesterday, someone thrust into my hands, an 8GB silver iPod Nano and left it there for slightly less than an hour. Free. No charge. Just test drive it for two hours and then return the unit to them. I think it's a pretty cool marketing gimmick.

I was first impressed by the slimness of the Nano. It was so slim it was indecent. I could hardly feel it in my hands. Then the cool silver surface called to me. I was drawn to the shiny reflective surface and the simplicity of the white buttons on the front. But, the thing that sealed the deal was... the vibrant colour screen. Oh! It took my breath away. I mean, just look at the explosion above! Before you can say anything else... boom, I was in lust with it. LOL!

This is so going on my wishlist. *hint hint*

So there you have it. My first steps to the Apple camp. Signor LB, are you pleased yet? *grin*

Oh, and also a welcome to Ehon for having officially crossed over to the Dark Side of blogging! Teeheehee!
