James Lileks wants a new iPod too.
Great minds, and so on.
What he actually got was a swing.
I gotta get me one of them iPods.
The new models are cooler than ever, even if the "dock" looks worse than useless. 30GB of storage, 6 ounces, 8 hours playing time. Connects via FireWire or USB; doubles as an external hard disk for my perennially full Sony Picturebook.
You can even play Solitaire!
Clearly, what Apple and/or Sony need to do is smoosh this thing together with the nifty Sony Clie NZ90, which wonderful as it is, is direly lacking in storage. Then add a multi-system cellphone and GPS and you'll have the ultimate geek gadget.
Except by that point it will weigh as much as my Picturebook, and still do less.
Never mind then. I'll just take the iPod.

The Internet is a time machine.
I did 18 out of my 20 impossible things, and of the remaining two, one can't happen before the end of the month and no-one has actually decided what the other one is yet. So I can say that they're done and no-one can prove otherwise.
In other words, I'm blogging from work.
So why is the Internet a time machine, you ask? Well, you could (and indeed should) take a look at lileks.com and spend a happy - if somewhat dazed - afternoon lost in the 50's and 60's. It's well worth the effort, particularly if you missed them the first time 'round.
But what I was actually thinking of is this: Tonight, when I go home, I'm going to watch next week's episode of Buffy.
Which means I can spoil it for the guys at work. Hahaha! Not that I'd do that, of course.
The thing I have to remember is: Don't get greedy. No-one likes a greedy time traveller.

Of course, now I have to download next week's episode and watch that too. No minutes! No waiting!
But this time I think I'll leave it to run overnight so that it doesn't chew up my precious peak-time badnwidth.
Meanwhile, kAzAa is chewing up all my upstream bandwidth, since I dropped Azumanga Daioh and Jungle Guu into my share folder. (And Rizelmine.) But I don't pay for uploads, so I don't care. Nyaa!
