I (Want) Tunes...


I'm getting a bit fed up with my Sony MP3 player (or Sony Network Walkman NW-HD1 to give it it's full name). Sure it plays music fine. But even the latest SonicStage software it uses is just pathetic; it's slow, bereft of features, cumbersome and (worst of all) you can't easily create playlists on the fly. I want to be able to line up the next set of tracks - not have to wait until the last one has finished. V v frustrating.

So since it's my birthday in ten days time (hint, hint) I've decided to treat myself to a new toy. The only thing is... I can't decide. iPod Color or iPod Nano. (Or both!)

UPDATE: Well, I've taken the plunge and bought myself an iPod 60Gb. Charging as we speak. Work have chipped in part of the money as a birthday present so that's taken some of the sting out of the £339 price tag. But God, do the people who work in stores (and specifically the people who work in the Apple Store in Regent Street) know how to take the fun out of shopping? Patronising remark, sigh, patronising remark, sigh, sigh, amble off to ask another sales guy, shake head, amble back, patronising remark. I was only trying to find out what came in the bloody box in case I need to buy extra cables or a docking station. Yes, I know what USB is. Yes, I know what a power supply is. Don't patronise me, you (admittedly rather handsome) gibbon! Rant over.
