I already had an IPod. One of those original ones. The ones where the batteries didn't hold a charge. No matter how much I charged mine, it could only play for about an hour. And that was if I used it right after I charged it. If I let it set awhile after a charge, my playtime went down.
Not so with my new Touch. I have loaded all my songs, plus now I have loaded that music video where the guys dance on treadmills. (I want to learn to do that!) I have uploaded my contacts on it. I have played with the calendar and listened to the soundtrack to JUNO about a million times, and my charge holds. It seems like I rarely have to charge the darn thing. It plays for hours on one charge. It's easy to load stuff on. It's easy to organize my music. I love the YouTube icon - where I can go out with one touch and watch all the most popular videos. I loaded all my "bragging photos" onto the Touch and can show off my family photos with one touch. I can surf the internet with Safari. All with one touch. All with little re-charging.
I can spend hours with my Touch. And I do. I spend all day with those silly white buds in my ear. I can't get any work done. I don't have time to cook. I haven't talked to my husband in two weeks. I'm too busy surfing the net, downloading music and videos and photos. I am hooked. IPOD TOUCH has ruined my life.
