Gah. Too much new Apple coolness! Brain suffering overload. 20GB iPods that come with belt clip, remote, new headphones, and work on PCs! iTunes 3 with smart playlists and audiobook support! 17-inch iMacs with SuperDrives and 80GB hard drives! And finally, the piéce de resistance, Mac OSX 10.2 (codename "Jaguar" - I love that!). And I'm spent.

When I saw the Jaguar announcement yesterday, I had an orgasm. Seriously. ;)

My original iPod earbuds died on me long ago, so I was thrilled to see that Apple is now offering the ability to order them separately. Man, these Sony earbuds I bought as replacements just suck donkey. I think I may make an order today...

Apple rocks! Lots of cool new toys--I really want an iPod, but I've already bought a lot of gadgets this year so am restraining myself for now. My recent horrible Windows experience makes me wish that Apple had a lot more market share...

Dude, the correct term is "Apple-gasm". :)

Hey, I'll sell my old earbuds to you. I've only used 'em, like, once. They're too big for my ears. Of course, you probably wanna get the spiffy new ones...

psorr - you should do one of the "Switch" commercials! :)

I'd love to Switch, but my office/clients use Windows exclusively...I'm sure many people are in the same boat. At least I can say that for home use I've only bought Apple (unfortunately my current G3 is four years old now-ugh!)

Ah, but imagine how many you can convert when you whip out an iBook loaded with OSX 10.2 and seamlessly connect to their silly Windows network while doing all sorts of cool Unix stuff on the command line... :)

Switch switch switch switch!

Oh, yeah... How much would you want for your earbuds? I haven't made my order yet. :)
» Moire [www] » 2002-07-19 11:58:14
Seriously? You want 'em? Actually I'll give 'em to you for free, since I'm not using them. Just cover the postage. :)
» Kris [www] » 2002-07-19 12:44:30
Kickass! I'll gladly cover postage! Do you still have the little packet with the foam bits? Those are definitely a must... I don't like to wear the earbuds without 'em!
» Moire [www] » 2002-07-19 13:41:28
I'm pretty sure I put the foam bits on the buds when I first got it. I'll check. Hey, send me your address again. I'm not sure I still have it.

Cool for Windows too. :-) Now I'm happy (and saving).

Sorry but I ain't gonna move to Apple I have too much legacy stuff (my site is in ASP for a start) even though they are dead cool.

That's what VirtualPC is for, Martin. :) There's nothing you can't do on a Mac these days.
