I remember being absolutely thrilled to have purchased my iPod, Prissy at a steal last April.
Since then things have happened that have put a damper on my joy. For instance, Apple released a new line of iPods that look so different from previous models that poor Prissy now looks dated. And while I have barely gone through half of Prissy’s 80GB storage, the 160GB storage on new iPods seriously has me going through buyer’s remorse. (I’m still paying for Prissy via credit card installment at 0% interest over 12 months.)
It’s been a few months since the new iPods have come out and a lot of people I know have “upgraded” to the new models. However, I realize that my iPod is still good; at some point I’ll just have to have the battery replaced, but there’s really no reason for me to get a new one. It’s just extremely clever marketing and hype that has me going, “Oh, I gotta have that.”
I’ll just console myself by loading more music and videos, and spiffying up Prissy with G-Mask. It’s not about what you have; it’s how you carry it. Ü
