Becoming one of the iPod people

I've finally joined the MP3-player age. Yes, I finally have an iPod. And I spent a good portion of the weekend loading CDs onto the computer and transferring them to my new toy.

For a long time I never even entertained the notion of buying any type of portable music player, because I didn't think I would get much use out if it. I'm not the type of person you really likes wearing headphones, or earphones, and listening to music. But after learning that it would be possible to play an iPod through my antiquated car stereo, which doesn't even have a CD player, I began to see the practicality of such an investment.

That sort of follows my pattern of technology purchases. I never been on the first wave of buying things like VCRs, CD players, DVD players and the like. I tend to wait to see if the newest technology is going to stick around a while and to see if the price will come down some before taking the plunge. And I probably could have got in on the latest wave with a less expensive player, but the folks at Mac and iPod have certainly established themselves as the state of the art.

So far, I've got enough music loaded onto the iPod to listen to music for three days. And over the weekend, while setting up the new toy I got an opportunity to listen to some music I haven't listened to for months, even years.

So, between that, a trip to Portland to see my daughter over the weekend, and some time talking with a dear friend out of state, that's why there haven't been any blog posts over the last few days.
