New iPods

OOOOOOH!!! OMGoodness... where do I begin? New coloured Shuffles... New Nanos with bigger screens and bigger capacity... iPod "classics" with all-metal bodies and a massive 160gb as the new big capacity... oh and the iPod Touch!!!

Full screen... coverflow... wifi... 8gb or 16gb... its like an iPhone without the Phone!

But there's more... they've dropped the price of iPhones... and introduced a wi-fi music store... that can be surfed... for free... in Starbucks.

New iPods + Starbucks = Me... delirious in covetous glee!

Thing is... I don't need a new iPod. Sure... I'd love to be to be able to surf Facebook on the free wi-fi spot at the Gallery of Modern Art... but do I need to?

Our society is based on consumption... wants vs needs... I have 5 iPods... amassed over 4 years. I daily use 3 of them... with the other 2 getting used on and off through the week.

Apple make good kit... and this is more good kit. They are pushing the envelope... taking things forward... and its a pleasure to watch this progress. The future is here and now... but do I need it?

Hmm...
