new toy: ipod video

i was one of those people who pre-ordered an ipod mini when they first came out and I'd had it ever since.

until now.

I've finally upgraded to a new black 30gb ipod video and i don't know how i lived without one before.

firstly, the increase in space means that i now not only can put on more than a few playlists, but I've also got access to movies and tv shows where ever i am.

secondly; podcasts. I've been a fan of podcasts for a while, but having an ipod video means that i can now watch them on the go.

in saying that though, you have to be picky with video podcasts because there is a lot of crap out there. i recommend checking out any podcast from G4, they won't steer you wrong. everything else is just amateurish crap.

i have a bunch of movies that I've converted using the free videora software and it works swell. and with the AV cable, i can watch my movies on any tv. it's a dangerous tool for a self confessed tv addict.

it's always funny to look back at the fake ipod video mock ups and these too
