fuck.

i'm always a step behind.

it's not like my 40gb ipod is a paperweight, but fuck if it doesn't feel that way.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Has everyone seen how many HD trailers they just added to the quicktime site? Redunkulous.

I'm a little jealous of my friend who is getting one, and will now have his portfolio of video work with him where ever he goes, and can show it to anyone.

It'd be great when people ask what you do and you can just whip it out your pants and show em instead of just talking about it.

Speaking of which, does anyone else feel like the primary function of this thing will be to let people watch porn anytime, anywhere?


Not that that's what I'd use it for, I just saying, is all.  :oops:
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

it's not like it's the first device ever to play video and mp3s and all that. it'll be the highest selling, coolest looking, and whatever, but they are hardly the first to make porn portable.  :shock:

It's not what it does so much as what it represents, and what it facillitates. It's the delivery of on-demand HD content that's really going to shake things up.

And the remote control for the new iMac? That's a big hint right there, too.
