5 years ago, in 2004, I bought my first iPod (I’m a big spender – I’ve bought two over the years – one for me and one for my wife). I got a really great deal – the photo/video iPod I bought was the newest model with 60GB of storage, and regularly retailed for $499 (or was it $449?).
I got mine for $349 with a one-year subscription to Audible.com ($14.95 a month, but I was going to spend that anyway)…
The family and I were out at Costco a week or so ago and I sauntered past their mountain of iPods. The newest model has a 120GB hard drive and costs…
$212 and change.
With a battery that lasts up to 36 hours on a charge (mine was good for 15 hours, but now it’s down to about an hour, so it’s time – Honey, can you read me?)
Double the capacity for half the price.
Gotta love tech. Better, cheaper, faster.
If I wait forever, everything will be free.
