My New TechToy – a Pink iPod Nano

By Char

pink iPod nanoIt’s not an iPhone or some other fancy new gadget. As a matter of fact, they’ve been around for a while, but still, I am so happy to finally get my own iPod! I was tired of listening to Hannah Montana on my daughter’s iPod and classic rock on my husband’s iPod was just not my style. Plus I wanted one small enough to put in an arm band so I can easily wear it while walking the dog or riding the recumbent bike.

So, Friday the 13th was my lucky day, because my well-trained kids had been passing on the message for months to my husband and they all got me a hot pink iPod nano for my birthday.

After dinner I immediately headed to the CD cabinet and grabbed some of my favorite oldies (Alphaville, Depeche Mode, Elvis Presley, The Replacements) and began ripping them onto my iPod. Once I made it through the stack I headed over to iTunes to grab some new tunes from The Kaiser Chiefs, Mika, Robbie Williams and Fatboy Slim to round out my very eclectic collection.

Now it’s your turn. What are the best sites for staying up to date on the best tips and such for iPods?



Well, if you want workout songs, check out – yes it’s my site :0) I think there is one playlist with Hanna Montoya on it – although I think our tastes might be slightly different judging from the music you mentioned, but I’m always open to suggestions.


I haven’t got an iPod Char so can’t share any tips. But just wanna say yours look so cool – maybe it’s time I should use one for my gym sessions.
