I have my iPod, and it is good

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the iPod is the single greatest consumer electronics device ever made, period. I ripped most of my CD collection, around 3,600 songs, and I'm listening to stuff I haven't heard in ages because it's just so damn convenient.

Draeger told me that the packaging was almost as cool as the device itself. Clearly the people at Apple are the greatest designers in the world in everything they touch. They take a lot of pride in their product, that's for sure. They're the kings of user interface and human factors in the computer world. They set the standard with everything, hardware and software (with the one exception being those nasty mice sold with the original iMacs).

Listening to the Breeders right now...

I agree about those original iMac mice...whose fucking idea was that?!

And you can't forget about the [url+"http://www.apple-history.com/frames/body.php?page=gallery&model=g4cube"]G4 Cubes either....those didn't last too long.
