Confession Number Twenty-Eight

I must confess...

... that I am being sucked into getting an iPod Touch.

Due to my recent experiment with iPod - Toilet solution caused my iPod to die, I have been waiting to buy myself a new mp3 player. I feel like Apple is the way to go. Although Microsoft's Zune has some pretty cool features like the unlimited music pass or the wireless sharing of music with other Zune owners, Apple is clearly the leader in mp3 technology.

I was very excited about the iPhone, but I knew that there was no way I was going to be able to afford it. Also, it was completely unneccesary because I already had my iPod. But when the iPod Touch came out, I wanted to touch that music player all over!

I could easily afford to buy an iPod Touch because of my summer job and saved birthday money. However, the recent unveiling of the iPhone 3G at $199 just makes the $249 iPod Touch unappealing. Many say that the $199 iPhone is just to pull in customers and sign a contract with AT&T where Apple gets part of the revenue. This is not true however, because of the recent Apple and AT&T contract saying that AT&T will not give any portion of the revenue to Apple, making the statement preposterous.

I'm guessing there will be a major price drop for the iPod Touch on July 11th with the introduction of the $199 iPhone 3G. So, I have decided to wait until the 11th of July to go mp3 shopping.
