I love my Touch. I've had a bit of a gadget obsession since I was a kid, but this thing was the first time a gadget ever made me feel like I was living in "the future." I would have gotten a full-out iPhone, but...um...AT&T :evil:

Yes, same here. But oh well, I'm very pleased with the Touch, so I'm not really missing the phone.

By the way, I saw you got an armband. Is that for your touch? I run/hit the gym several nights a week, so I'm a pretty active person. I'm so paranoid of my Touch falling out of the case while I'm running. Does it seem secure? Is it the official Apple one?

The armband is some no-name off brand, but it seems to both hold the iPod securely and stay on my arm well. (The iPod is a bit tough to get back out, though). It was technically designed for the iPhone, but it works just fine. I can send you a pic of the package if it'll help.

That's really nice looking. Sort of reminiscent of those binary watches that were really popular a year or so ago. I wasn't sure whether you were talking about a watch, or the Jethro Tull album.

That thing looks like a knockoff of an old Microsoft Sidewinder pad I had back in college. I got it in 2000 or 2001, and it used the game/MIDI port on PCs (this was while USB was still trying to spread itself), but it had an additional game port on the top of the controller so you could daisy chain them. I think it supported up to four controllers that way. The were great for emulation, because they had six face buttons (plus two menu buttons to use as Start/Select), and two shoulder buttons. Very comfortable in the hands, but the D-pad was really wonky. I think my brother still has them hooked up to his computer.
