A couple of years ago, the Hubby got me an Ipod Shuffle (The greatest present EVA, I tell ya!). It has been a faithful companion. Hours and hours of listening fun. And it still works. Mostly. It stops playing sometimes, and I have to reset it every few times I use it, but hey- it still does Exactly What I Want 15 times out of 16. I'm keeping it for my walks, too.
This year, my husband got my an iTouch.
I could put about 6 hours of music on my Shuffle, on the iTouch I get 5 days of music!!
and pictures and video. Life is sweet.
