A fruit called Apple

We are always attracted to cute little things. Be it the opposite sex, same sex or furniture or gadgets or etc. In terms of gadgets, if owning one does not burns holes in our pocket we will go out and buy it. Over these past few years, there is one particular technology company that manage to keep most of us interested in their products, it is Apple. Their products blend fashion and technology together. They are some who bought Apple PCs as just another piece of furniture.

If their PC runs on window, then most of us will definitely have one on our tables. As it’s a piece of art and not just a dull “box” that most of us is having now. Their MP3 players are a cut above the rest. Each year they kept coming out with products that could convince most of us to part with our money. My wife has bought an IPOD photo early of the year and since then they have introduce IPOD Nano and the recent IPOD Video and guess what happen? My wife, who loves all things cutes, has parted with her IPOD photo and bought a 60 GB IPOD Video.

Her IPOD photo is now with me, I am now in the midst of transferring my CD collections into it. IPOD Video looks better than IPOD Photo. The screen is bigger and it’s smaller in size. I have used it for a couple of times and if given the slightest chances I will hide it from my wife and tell her that an alien just drops by and took it to do some kind of experiment. Who knows I could use it to attract some pretty young girls, just like most guys uses a dog to strike up a conversation.

My wife has converted some VCDs using a converter (not Quick Time Pro) and the quality is not bad. It’s not in the “Wow” category but it’s not in the “Shit” category either. It’s good enough for busy people to watch movies on the go. The downside is that it eats up a lot of battery juice. The battery is just good enough to watch a movie, it might have some problem with movies that is above 3 hours. Do find a good converter as the initial converter we got is not that good, as the sound is not in synch with the video.

I have just managed to download some movie trailers for my PSP. In terms of watchability and quality, PSP is ahead of IPOD Video. The only problem is that you will need to have at least a 512 MB or one GB storage as each movie will be around 500 MB and above. And it cost around Rm350 to get a one GB memory stick. Poor me is still having the 32 MB memory stick that comes with the package. I am hoping the price will drop soon as there is rumours that Sony will introduce a 4 GB memory stick soon…..please, please Sony as I want to watch some movies with my PSP.

chloe, I guess like most Japenese or Asian brand, sony will actually make things better later. Asian company is not good at creating things but they are good at enhancing them....

LeeCS, Ya lor, until now still no tuner, not sure why? O2 exec sure is expensive one....

Jaxon, can one, you just point, take out your plastic and swap...

PhotoCrazy, saw one the other day, a 2GB that cost around Rm410. Not sure if its a fake one or not...

Dreaming Neko, happy 2006 to you too...

Lynne, my wife not only loves it but she will buy it....Change or upgrade more often than me...hahaha

Well, in my opinion, you can never go wrong with anything made by Apple - they're a company full of geniuses, mad geniuses. Happy New Year.
