The first step to the dark side

Last week I made an impulse buy that may come back to haunt me. On a whim I picked up a refurbished second generation iPod Shuffle for $60. I had purchased the girlfriend a 30GB video iPod for her birthday last year and I was really impressed with the support for podcasting that came with iTunes and so the Shuffle made more sense than a full blown video iPod (if I want to watch video on a tiny screen I can watch it on my phone).

I'm not a huge fan of the empire of Steve. I think their ad campaign, while funny, perpetrates a lot of common industry myths and spreads the stupid elitism and smugness that overpaying for a computer allows you to own. Feh, I need to go scrub my hands...with lava...
