Plz convince me of this. Plz convince my savings account of this. Plz convince me that if I do not blow the extra money in my savings account on such a thing, I will have extra money to spend at, in, or near connexions and that could only be a good thing. Edit -- (I'm not really likely to buy one, unless I come across a used one for a huge discount on ebay. My brain just has the itch.)

I desperately hate them, not for the aspect of me participating, but for the part where one has to bug other people to participate.

No, you don't need an ipod. You need an iriver.

It's 30$ more than the 20 gig ipod, for the same capacity. *tilts head*

Will it help if I say I can't fathom why anyone would want an iPod?

Myself, I'd want one because it's basically a really huge (storage-wise) mp3 player, which also doubles as an external hard drive. Since my second (warrantied) external hard drive just crapped out on me, and it would be nice to have an mp3 player, so I don't have to keep making mix cds for trips and such... Yeah, I can't really justify it even in my head, when I could get a huge hard drive and a medium-sized mp3 player for less, separately, I'm sure.

I only got mine to leave my hands free when I work out--because it's very small and lightweight and there's an armband accessory for it. I do find myself occasionally using it elsewhere, and it's highly cool that you can pack 1000 songs on it and use playlists and so on--but I probably never would have bought it just to carry around with me; I tend to think a portable cd player & cds, including mix cds, would do anyone fine. Does this help?

I hate my portable cd-player, is the problem (they skip constantly when driving, at least around here), and also hate burning cds. That's part of the draw of an mp3 player. But the likelihood of me actually giving in and buying one is really fairly slim.

After looking at prices for similar items on ebay? At this point I do not need an mp3 player, period. Gah, it's giving me a headache to scroll through that stuff.

Well, since I just opened my BRAND NEW DELL DIGITAL JUKEBOX about five seconds ago, I will play devil's advocate and say that you definitely need an mp3. :)

We love the Bunny's iPod. It's one of the 'mini' ones, and it is pink, and perfect. Its name is, of course,"Pinky".

Are you scared now? ;-)

The big ones that hold 40 or 60 GB or whatever, those are more expensive and heavier. Get a mini one, if you must buy one.

* Oh shiny! *

The mini only holds 4 gig, though, doesn't it? And it's like 20$ less than the full-size that holds 20gig. I'd be going for the 20 if I bought one, because I'm in it for the storage, not the size or lack thereof.

But I'm not buying one!

Not not not not not!
