David finally decided to part ways with his birthday and Christmas money and get himself an 80GB black iPod. His old one was from the dinosaur days (or--4 years ago) in technology terms. The battery life on the first one was fizzling out and it was having major techincal difficulties. Dave's very happy now because his new iPod can hold 10x more songs than his other one. As I sit here and type, he's loading it up for the long commute to work tomorrow. Yay for him, he's too cute when he gets a new toy!
