My girlfriend bought her son an Apple Ipod with 32 GB for his birthday. I did not know much about these at the time but boy did I become impressed pretty quickly. I had seen the Apple Iphones but have always thought the monthly contracted service fee for those was quite a bit. Hence I never really pursued much info on them.
The Ipod allows you to get on the internet without a charge of any sort wherever there is a WIFI. I like to see what the various stock prices are doing so all I had to do was touch the area on the Ipod for stocks and there was the market action. Her son added the ticker symbols to help keep track of a couple of stocks I own. I was hoping this might get him a little interested in the investments. Many things that one wants to know of in the course of a day were right there with just a touch such as weather etc.
I wondered how the music would be on something so darn small. I could not believe it when I put on the earbuds. It was like all of a sudden there was a concert hall in my room. These are just initial impressions on my part from trying this item. I am still in shock that something this small can do all of this and do it so well. Obviously with the Iphone and the Ipod touch Apple is going to be doing very well for a long time to come.
