My pressie, the black iPod Video finally arrived (I wanted to take actual fotos of my set but there is just too much reflection).
Since engraving is free when buying the set from the Apple online store, I had the following engraved on this new set “Christina Tan 🙂 Psalm 34:4” (Similar to my old iPod Mini, except that the verse on that set was Psalm 18:2“)
Even though it’s bigger than my iPod Mini, but it’s thinner and sleeker too. I am pleased and happy with this new toy, especially since I now have 30gb of memory space to dump my songs, pictures and videos into. If there is one minor issue I have with the iPod Video, it will have to be its shiny silver back. ‘Cos all that fingerprints just stick onto the metal, quite unsightly u know, especially since I am quite an OCF (i.e. Obsessive Compulsion Freak).
Ah, I need to look for a nice casing (btw the set comes with a simple black pouch, but one which I will have to take the iPod Vid in and out to use the Clickwheel), to protect the set in case I drop it and also to prevent fingerprint smudges.
Updates (14 Dec 06):
I went to Wan Chai Computer Mall this evening after my driving lessons to look for a nice casing and screen protector (HK$40). I bought the blue plastic casing (HK$98) which not just protects my iPod Video from scratches but has a lil’ stand to prop my iPod Video upright too.
I just spent the last 2-3 hours uploading the following stuff – 500 songs (I have lots more in my HTPC but am tired of most of the songs) , 19 videos (mostly Chris Sharma’s bouldering clips) and the movie, Shrek 2.
So now, D and I will be glued onto our Zen Vision M and iPod Video respectively while on the bus, MRT or plane. 🙂
Thanks D… love the pressie. Yeah 🙂
