Yeah right..we draw names in our family and something of that value is never considered. I never get stuff like that for presents..always have to buy it myself. <br><br>And with my birthday 5 days after Christmas...you can guess what I get..nothing. <br><br>
Hey, my birthday is Jan 5th--and in a Latin American context, that's particularly bad because it's the eve of epiphany, and epiphany is the day on which Latin Americans traditionally exchange gifts, not Christmas day. So I feel your pain, man <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

LOL... I know what you mean. My birthday is December 1st, so people always skimp on the gift cause they know Xmas is right around the corner!<br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

Well, I got my new 20 gig iPod last week and it *was* beautiful. I've had a 5 gig for almost a year and used it everyday, including running, biking, you name it and it never missed a beat.<br><br>The first time I took the 20gig one jogging it wouldn't load the songs into memory (as someone said in this thread long ago). After checking the Apple discussion forums, sure enough, a lot of people with the 10 and 20 gig versions have the same problem. Apparently, something about the 10 and 20 gig iPod HDs is different and it has much more trouble loading the RAM when it is being jiggled around. Crap! There is not one person who has experienced this with the 5 gig version.<br><br>I poked around in the Apple Knowledge base and found this article which states, "iPod is designed to handle rigorous activity such as jogging or running..."<br><br>So, I wrote Apple and in 24 hours they had already sent a box for repair. I sure hope they can fix it. <br><br>---<br><br>By the way, my wife is sure smug with the 'hand-me-down' 5 gig. Maybe this will teach me not to be so greedy about the new stuff! <br><br>
