Of iPod Nano and Razrs

September 13, 2005

Joe Wilcox notes:

My wife’s not much of a technobabe. She can use the Web and e-mail, but pretty much stops there. Oh, yeah, she listens to music on an iPod mini. So, she doesn’t much tune into tech talk; those conversations she tunes out.

…I took her to see iPod nano last night, at Apple’s mini store in downtown Bethesda, Md. My wife and daughter both gawked, while I showed just a ting more restraint. To say the device is small really doesn’t describe the size. Best is to say that everything else is huge by comparison.

I think Joe’s wife must be in the same circle as my wife. My wife LOVES the Razr she asked for for her birthday. My wife NEVER asks for any gadgetry for any event, nor does she generally use it. Though she did love the Rio Carbon (RIP), she recently decided the Razr was her new technocraving.

She has the Razr. The other day, I found my old Motorola StarTac from 1998 and put it alongside. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Which brings me to the iPod Nano. I know this is going to be on her Christmas list (though she’ll hate the lack of Yahoo Music support). I’m looking forward to comparing the Nano to the Razr.

At that size, could an iPod Phone built and designed by Apple really be that far out of reach?

Creative- it’s time to do something bold.
