New iPod Owner Onslaught Overwhelms iTunes

System.out.println() Re:Apple and iPod... (395 comments)

If money's a factor, you can always go the route I did - go to the Apple Store online and look in their refurb section. Everything on there is backed by the same warranty as the new stuff. They used to have (and may still have) first gen (black/white) 2Gb nanos for $99, for example.

For Christmas I got a refurb'd 60GB iPod video. I'd told my parents that I had no need for 80GB, but 30 was too small (they really should stick a 60GB in that $300 hole) and pointed them to Apple's refurb site. Since the 5G 60GB is for all intents and purposes the same as the current generation aside from the capacity, it seemed like a good call.

Mod points and GMail invites!

System.out.println() System.out.println() writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Pretty self explanatory: I need to spend my mod points (I get them regularly) and GMail invites (my friends all have accounts).

Want GMail? Give me an email address and a name to send it to.
Think a post needs a mod point thrown at it? link it here.

Thanks. :)

Anyone else think the globalservers VPS ads are among the best banners you've seen?

- They don't jump out and say LOOK AT MEEEE! STOP READING AND LOOOOK! YOU'RE NOT LOOKINGG!!!!111!!!
- At the same time, they encourage you to read them if you're remotely interested in that sort of thing.
- They make GS look like a good service. (Can't speak to whether it actually is or not, but I get that impression.)

In other words, without annoying the hell out of me, they might make me consider giving them money.

Or, everyone I hate always posts anonymously. Bastards.
