Today I bought myself a toy. iPod touch. Remembering back in the days when I still didn't have a cell phone, I can recall wanting to buy something for sending e-mail messages. I decided to wait and finally, after a good few years, I got myself a cell with sprint. Now I really want to upgrade to a smart phone, but an upgrade would also mean a considerable increase in my monthly phone bill. Having recently lost my iPod -- I think I dropped it out of my pocket without noticing -- I'm scared to think how crazy I'd become if this new $300+ gizmo becomes lost in similar fashion. The old iPod was originally meant az a gift for an ex-gf who refused to take it; so I just shucked it off as something i never had.
