I am a big, fat iPod hypocrite.
I'm going to draw your attention to a song I wrote not too long ago called "You're My iPod".
"I am always with you
and I'm glad that you want me around"
I decided that I didn't want or need an 80 GB harddrive and I didn't use the iPod enough to justify still having it.
"I remember my walkman
But you're just more elegant and I'll never trade you in"
Recently I listed my 80GB video ipod on Ebay with the intention of using the money I made to upgrade to an iPod Touch because it's newer, more useful and all around just kind of a cooler machine.
"It's been two years you're getting kind of warn out
And now your harddrive is at eighty-five percent"
I bought a protective case for it, but the case is kind of scratched up and even though underneath the iPod is sleek and shiny, it's just rapidly becoming a thing of the past because I can't download apps or play cool games on it or connect to the internet.
Also, because I HAVE 80 GB of space, I find myself holding onto music and TV shows that I don't need or have room for on my computer simply because I have the space on my iPod. I want to consolidate my collection and the 32 GB iPod Touch encourages me to do that.
"I can't believe that you would say these things
it's not my fault you dropped me , these dents are from you!"
Yeah... I dropped it a few times. And the scratched up case is from me carting it around in my purse in the same pocket as jewelry or coins or whatever else made its way in there.
"You know you promised you would always love me"
You know... I sold it on Ebay and told my subscribers/followers that I was doing so because I wanted to ensure that this iPod would go to a nice new home where its new owner WILL love it the way I always promised I would. But I just don't think it's going to work out bewteen us, iPod. It's not you, really. It's me. I need to move on. See bigger and better mp3 players. We had some great times, you know? You got to be hooked up to the Auxilliary input in my new fiesta. You played the backing tracks to Parselmouths songs at Wizard Rock shows. We traveled to London together - no one else got to fly with me for 10 hours straight.
So don't take it personally, 80 GB video iPod. I will always love you. I just need to move on.
