new ipod?

Every time I watch the news I see how gas prices and heating fuel costs are going to keep on getting worse and strapping families financially for months to come. EVERY Frickin' time I turn on the news!!! Right after I hear this AGAIN, the Today show does a segment on the new Ipod Video. Here's how it played out. Presidential Approval rating down to 39% because of war in Iraq, hurricanes and rising energy costs... Higher Gas Prices and Heating Fuel costs send america into the gutter. Any merrit raises will go to the gas tank. An african american woman saying she can't cut back any more... Oh, my, here's your new hope!!! A NEW IPOD that plays VIDEO!!! You gotta have it!!! I can't heat my house, I can't drive my car, I hate my president because he caused the hurrucanes and started the war, but at least we still have Ipod. Whew, I thought we were really going down the crapper. Thank GOD I have my IPod!!! Give me a break. I'm rebelling. No Ipod for me.

My mom rarely drives so I get one for Xmas. Actually,I wanted the mini in pink...but they are no more! But, I get it. The sad thing is...how many people will be in debt because they had to have the latest bit of technology?

So, you're not buying it because...the Today show said it was cool? Ok. You're choice. But iPod's are really cool. I've had one for about 2-3 years (got the 2nd version they came out with). You can find good deals on ipods at

LOL. That was kinda funny. Stay strong brother, those of us who have sold out to the marketing machine of Steve Jobs need heroes like you!

But don't bother me right now I'm listen to David Crowder on my iPod.

But I'm not that bad, I got mine on a deal with my laptop, $69. Of course the stupid thing won't play video...
