I got a 1GB sony mp3 player! it kicks ass since it can play up to 500 songs (ATRAC3 66Kbps) and last up to 70 hours on one AAA battery! and the sound is great way better then some crappy ipod! and also I bought some awesome sony studio headphones and this mp3 player THUMPS!!! I love it and I bough both for 120 bucks! If you want a good value mp3 thats uber small-get this one. sony nw-e107!!!

I also got my hubby adam the game GUN and he's playing it right now on comp2! he's likin it very much so!

I also got lots of clothes from my mom and dad and soem candles, 2 neackalces from sis and a nice coat hanger for the entryway in my apt. and soem lipgloss too.

it also has DRM problems that can result in NONE of your purchased songs playing or any of them that have "questionable" origins. also it will reconcode them into quitcktime format and you cannot take them off the player with any software other than itunes. also you cannot use them as flash drives, etc.

videos also have spotty playback. and overall fimware is spotty. It will often lock up and player needs to be rebooted. I used one of my freinds and did this all the time when he wanted to watch a movie on it. it would totally lock up. he took it bakc and got a creative media center ( much better and more features!!)

If you want video playback just get a portable media center they are awesome I love the creative ones! I used those and they are very stable.

yah apple also changes way to much for thier "128 bit desktops" bull 128bit dont even exist yet! they just use it for marketing! thats all they are about. and some mindless teens fall for it since its "hip" I think people are trying way to hard to be hip. imagine granny doing this stuff and it gets scaaaaary!

hell apple charges 4K for a system that has crappier specs than a custom system for 1500!!! and they have no decent cooling, and they run HOT, they have no decent software, you cant play games on them well, and you also cant buy any stick of ram, any sound cards, anything practally since it has to be mac stuff. and you have to be certified to fix them , and the design is just crappy.

people like them jsut becuase all the stupid n00b celebs use them ands they are in movies just becuase of the looks. they see it doing amazing things in the movies, they think they can get that power, but they really dont. the movies are fake people get a grip!

and above all, 20 years for them to get right click!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thier oses are crap, they are linux clones with a pretty (ugly) face. they are a pain in the ass to use!!!

and thier stupid commercials are like this..

"I had to spend all x-mas morning downloading drivers for my digial camera" "thats why I got a mac".....

total bull shit! for one thing, most digital cameras come with a easy as hell instaltion cd, and my high end camera have drivers PRE_LOADED on windows! so all you gotta do is plug-n-play!!!

macs on the other hand are worse to install digial cam drivers!
