Guess I'm Just No t Hip

Everywhere I look I see the buzz about the new IPod. Great... now I can watch video. Trouble is I dont want to. I was not that crazy about all the tunes you could have on the music one. Who wants to be that connected to music anyway? I enjoy listening to music but not hours on end. Now they are trying to entice me with video. Somehow I can't see myself watching Lost or Desperate Housewives on an itty bitty screen. First the experts say wide screen is better than regular because so much more of each picture can be seen. All the chariots in Ben-Hur versus one chariot. Now they want me to buy a video IPod to watch the tiny, tiny housewives... Guess I am just not that hip. Many years ago I did medical transcrpition plugged into an earpiece. After a while I felt that something was crawling in my ears. I do occasionly listen to music on headphones. I like Barry Manilow, my husband likes the Stones. But, I just cant see myself plugged in that often. They are going to have to do something about battery life before I watch a movie one IPod. I'm just not hip enough to watch Jaws on IPod. I can just imagine the battery dying in mid-bite. Besides, that was a big shark. It wont all fit on the screen. Oh well, I guess I'll just remain hipless.

Don't worry, you're not the only
one to be not hip.

I would like one but it would be
stricly to download seminars or
radio shows that I can listen to
when walking or vacuuming.
