iPod OwnershipiPod I finally understand what the fuss is all about. I mean it just gives you unprecidented access to your music collection. I find myself listening to music I was only dimly aware that I owned, from CD's that must be buried somewhere dusty on the back of a bottom shelf behind a mountain of used computer parts and smelly dive gear.
iTunes sort of does that for you, but the 'aways have it with you'-ness of the iPod means that while you're waiting for a train, you can pop it out and explore. Man, to think I've listened to literally HOURS of completely irrelevant noise when I could be listening to music instead. (Some may argue that my music collection IS, in fact, irrelevant noise. Bite me).
