Treating Myself

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006 @ 10:26 pm | iPod

After taking the last 11 months off from work (well, there was the whole school thing…), I started doing some IT consulting on Monday for the summer and at least a bit beyond. Little tough getting back into the swing of things and I’d been feeling a bit ragged by the end of the day.

So, I decided to treat myself this evening. Got home, grabbed the car, went to the Apple Store in Clarendon, and picked up a little number in black.

No, not one these.

One of these:

Which, of course, means the new über-video iPods will be unveiled at the Manhatten opening tomorrow…

Just kidding… I hope.

It took about two days for me to remember that I absolutely hate office noise. Simply cannot concentrate with everything happening in the background. I’m also sharing an office with two recruiters — if they’re weren’t discussing candidates or openings or something, they wouldn’t be doing their job, so there’s always lots going on around me.

Not too many first impressions yet, beyond the Apple-on-Black boot screen looks rather slick. Oh, and copying 20GB of music over USB 1.1 is really slow.

Maybe I should’ve picked up that other black thing… of course, at this speed, the MacBook rev B could be out before my songs are ready. 🙂
