the iPod sure is pretty. making it even prettier is the fact that i now hold one in my grubby hands. seppo got me one as an early birthday present. 🙂 yay! it’s 20gbs of compact elegance. today, i picked up the awkwardly named “Digital Lifestyle Outfitters Transpod All-in-One Car Solution with FM Transmitter” to mount, charge, and play from the ipod while in the car. it’s pretty cool. no dangling cords or anything, just a simple mount that protrudes from the cigarette lighter.
