Gadgets for Home: Ipod's
Ipod's are taking over the world. I can barely remember the Sony Walkman. It's really an amazing time for music and video lovers. Total portability for a very low price.
This leads to me write this note to all that will listen. I live in New York City with my girlfriend. We've lived together (happily) for two years. And, for these two years I've ducked into my home office hundreds of times to go online. My girlfriend, except for a few random email sessions, has never touched the computer - until now.
I bought her an Apple Ipod mini for her birthday. Now I can't get anywhere near the darn computer. She's downloading music or storing new files nearly everyday. And, this is from a person that does not feel comfortable around technology.
Never before have we witnessed such a rapid change in cultural habits as we are witnessing with the use of Ipod technology. When a technophobe like my girlfriend begins to use it everyday we know we've crossed a very wide chasm.
Let's look ahead a bit. Where's Apple going next? Will they launch a WIFI-enabled Ipod? How about full video-on-demand?
I bet will see both coming from Steve Jobs. Aside from Google, Apple, led by Jobs, is one of the great innovators of our time.
He has single-handedly changed the music industry - an industry he had nothing to do with 5 short years ago.
Stay tuned as I do more research into just where Apple is really going with their Ipod product line.
