I’m not the gadget fiend I used to be.
I like gadgets that, 1) are useful [not always a given, but you know this], 2) aren’t too fiddly [hephalump-thumbs-r-us], 3) not too expensive that I would fall to my knees, head held in hands, crying like a baby if said gadget got broken.
So the iPod Shuffle fits the bill.
I’ve had the little blighter a few months now. And .. well, I love it!
