      External Hard Drive Blues...

Not everything is wonderful in the land of tech upgrades though. My Macbook couldn't read my external hard drive as it is password protected, and the password software is only compatible with Windows. Plugging it back into my Dell, I tried to remove the password and somehow in the process managed to destroy the whole hard drive. I-O Data, you've just lost a customer. Luckily for me, the files which were supposed to be a backup for the files on my Dell, were still on my Dell, so I didn't lose everything. Annoyingly though, all but a few of the recent pictures (including the haikyo pictures and video) taken by my Canon, were lost, as my Dell hard drive didn't have any room for them.

Ipod Nano Upgrade!

ipod nano v.4 16GB  

To round out my tech purchases I decided I also couldn't live without a new ipod. Thankfully Apple decided to bring back the original design after turning me off with their 3rd generation square shaped models. They did however keep the larger, super high definition screens for version 4, which along with the option to have 16GB of space cinched the deal.
The only thing I really had to think about when getting one was the colour. It's a shame that they no longer make the pure white nanos, they've been replaced by silver now, which looks very analog in my opinion. On top of that, there's something about the new black model I just didn't like, so I was forced to go with a colour, and my favourite colour is green so...

      Style upgrade...

Getting a new bag doesn't really have anything to do with tech, but if fits in with the overall theme of this post which is spending money.
Using a backpack is like, so passe. I've been feeling embarrased these days when I headed out with my little Jack Wolfskin daypack. Even Kumi remarked that I could definitely use a style upgrade in that area. Well since was on a spending rampage, I figured now was a good a time as ever, and so after looking around a bit, I decided on this new shoulder bag from Diesel.

So is that everything? Well I'll probably take a break for a bit, but there are a few more things I could use, like a bluetooth keyboard and monitor for the Mac, bar ends and a speedometer for my Trek, etc, etc. Christmas is just around the corner!
