“Buggle” or, my new iPod

30GB iPod video

Picked up a new iPod last night, a 30GB video model. I fondled one a few weeks ago at a computer shop and had to have it – it’s so thin and light, and the front is so sleek and glass-like. Oooooh. The color screen is gorgeous, of course. Video is nice but the pictures feature is much more useful for me. I like showing off the latest Emi pix and the iPod makes is very easy. I’ve been using the Treo but the iPod is much simpler and the screen seems sharper (I know it’s not really sharper but it appears that way). I’m sure the video functions will come in handy for showing off the few movies we have of Emi but without an external speaker, it’s not great for sharing video on-the-fly with folks. You really need a TV around to plug into. My old 20GB 4G model went to a nice home, btw.

buy my junk

Just posted my old Creative Nomad II MG mp3 player on craigslist. Knock yourself out.

Canon SD500

Best camera I’ve ever owned. Period. This thing is fantastic! First, it’s crazy small and light. It’s actually smaller than my iPod and fits nicely in my Timbuk2 iPod case. But mostly it’s about ease of use. The camera is up and ready to shoot in less than a second. Let me say that again – before your finger is off the power button, the camera is ready to shoot. Shutter lag is non-existant and the autofocus mechanism is lightning-quick. There’s a pretty good movie mode which takes very nice vga-quality movies. After 24 hours, I’m a very happy customer.

New camera

Ordered a new camera today: the Canon SD500. Very compact, 7.1 megapixels, great lens, etc. I sold the Contax G2 in order to get another digital that was compact enough to carry around in my pocket all the time – smaller than our Canon S50. This should do nicely. Also picked up a little Canon all-in-one printer, the Pixma MP130 to replace our dead Lexmark.
