I love my ipod. At first, I didn't understand what the whole big deal was (as opposed to listening to cd's which is how I've listened to music for about the last twenty years) , but now that I have this wonderful musical library at my disposal at the touch of a button - I find that I can't live without one in the car.
I probably use my ipod about 3 hours a day and I only have to charge it once a week or so. Do you always remember to flick the on button to off when you're not listening to it?
I just reprogrammed mine last night - I added about 100 new songs- I am SO excited to go on my trip to visit my friend tomorrow and listen to new music all the way.
