I was driving home from Folsom Street Fair today, and in my tired stoop, all I wanted to do was listen to Kanye’s new jam, Stronger. I pulled my ipod, Stu-pod, out from my bag, plugged it in, and listened to said song.
A moment later when the next song was supposed to play, no audible noises came out. After resetting itself a couple of times, the file folder icon and exclamation point icon above popped up…
It’s an end of an era.
I bought Stu when I got my car, and after resuscitating Stu once (I saved him from a dead battery), I think Stu is done for good. I can’t imagine my world without music, and to think that only 4 years ago I was scoffing at ipods. Now it’s so unthinkable to be without it. Luckily I still have my 2gig nano, but let’s be real. It’s only 2 gigs!
Perhaps it’s time to buy an iPhone.
