I've got the bug...
....of wanting something and not being able to relax until I get it :)

I fancy buying an MP3 player so I can go out and play golf and listen to music at the same time Wink

Does anyone have any recommendations?....I really have no idea with technical stuff and like most men I hate shopping so I'm likely to pick up the first one I see unless someone can help me out Cool

logical choice would be an iPod.

iPoc now connects to window's machines. Seems to still have the largest memory on market. Can take the beatings of heavy duty snowboarding. Uses firewire (now legally usable instead of that boing IE1395 name). Is simply cool. And to my satisfaction an Apple product which means you get ease of use included.

A 5GB IPod is 300, that's a little over my budget :(

Do they do smaller ones?

Aha, Apple UK:

http://www.apple.com/uk/ipod/

I don't know what I need as additions, like the firewire cable and card for my pc...what if I don't buy them?

I guess I should email apple.

I've been looking for my credit card for months and I've just found it as I want to order an IPod...is that fate or what.

It was in my wallet of all the stupid places!....I also found 20 while I was in there that I didn't know I had...hallelujah!

I've had a look at the IPod and it looks so cool, I especially like the no moving parts thing and the fact it was designed to be treated a little rough...perfect for swinging a golf club.

Apparently it comes with a firewire cable and I'd like to think they'd bundle the PC card with the pc version (if they have any sense).

My finger is on the payment button. Screw the engraving, that is $75.

I'd definitely recommend it. My dad got ones, and it's so much nicer then my intel one I bought a while back that only had 128 megs of memory (that is now discontinued). The ipod is really nice..

Cheers,

Alex

hehe, smart move.

Now one problem.

My buddy-teacher at school spends all his time organizing his music instead of doing lesson plans now.

It should handle golf no problem, as long as you don't keep it in your back pocket. I have a tendancy at times to over swing and hit myself in the rump every once in a while.

lol, some of us have oodles of talent and don't hit ourselves in the ass with our golf clubs Cool

I bought a carry case for it to give extra protection.

My problem though is that I send a 9 iron 130+ yards and I'm relatively a newbie. You gotta admit that when you drive a shoot far and straight with a full swing nothing feels better.

Paul, let me know if you like it...

I tried listening to music while biking and kayaking, but did not like it as much as I thought I would. I found that the silence was much less boring than I though it was.

I hope you don't mean I've just spent $500 on something crap or were you just saying you prefer silence to music?

Is the sound quality good?

Sound quality is good. Also, you should have a look at:

http://www.audible.com/

You can download books onto it. Makes working out or walking the dog a lot less boring. =)

Cheers,

I was looking for the photo of all the Krohn's a while back but it seems to have disappeared from krohn.org.....I guess you hid it when everyone started snooping for pictures of the staff Wink

Nice dog...I bet it loves the snow too...my cats would hate it Smile

True,

A girl in a bar in southern Illinois asked me if Canadians had "normal" housing as well, once. I said "sure, we have electricity in our igloos these days".
