I completely understand the addiction to the iPod now and I’m only a beginner.
Last Christmas I gave one to my husband as a gift. He recently traveled to Nepal for a hiking/climbing adventure, but couldn’t take the iPod because it has a hard-drive that doesn’t work at high altitudes. So, of course, being techno-needy, he picked up the hard-drive-less new iPod Nano. I was left with the older one and got to play.
My main interest isn’t only with the music, although it is VERY cool to build your own playlists. I can’t wait to use it to download online teleclasses and podcasts.
My hope is that more artists start using iPods or MP3 players for the same reasons. There are two audio classes available now on ArtBizCoach.com that would fit easily on an iPod. You can also see how students are using the technology to make their own, irreverent museum tours.
This stuff is so cool!
