An iPod for Fathers Day

Fathers Day PresentFor Fathers Day, Jonna got me a 20 gigabyte iPod. I wasn’t really sure I wanted one, because about five years ago she got me a Rio Lyra and I never used it. Part of this was because you had to install a card reader, and the software to use it and I was running Linux. The second part was that you really couldn’t fit that much in 128 meg.

Tom the Architect and Keith the Team Lead both have them and love them though. So I have been thinking about it … I just wasn’t sure I wanted to make the investment in something I might not use.

Well, this iPod is something. I’ve got every Steve Vai song I own on this puppy along with most of the other significant stuff that I listen to on a regular basis. I spent all day yesterday just pulling songs from my CD collection onto the iPod. As it stands right now, I still have 16 gig free.

This thing is freakin’ awesome.

Now I just need time to listen to all of it. What I really need is something that hooks it up in the car. I can’t tell you how many CD’s I have lying around from being in the car. Even worse, much of my time yesterday was just figuring out what CD was where, as nothing was in the correct case due to switching CD’s while driving. For me at least, if they have something that can actually hook one of these things to the car, it will make for a much safer driving experience, and much less car cleaning when we want to take the top down in the Jeep on the weekends.

BTW … thanks to Tom the Architect for answering Jonna’s questions during the “research phase”.

Finally, thanks honey for the gift. I love it, and I love you.

  1. Ron,

    There are car accesories for the iPod. Try Apple’s website, they probably have the things your looking for.
