Ipod!

Written by

For Christmas this year my big brother got me a 30G black video ipod. This is one of those gifts that I had resisted getting on my own because I have a hard time spending a good chunk of change on something that I viewed as pure entertainment. What I’ve come to find out is how wrong I was. The video ipod, and the huge list of business related podcasts has allowed me to access information that I find interesting and relevant at nearly any time of the day. Currently I subscribe to podcasts such as ABC World News Now which is a video downloaded to my ipod of current news stories for that day. I can now watch the news on demand and it is very rewarding.

I’m also a big fan of Knowledge@Wharton Audio Articles. It makes the Wharton newsletter much more entertaining.

Other podcasts in my list:
NPR: Story of the Day
Photoshop TV
Diggnation (videos)
Daily SearchCast – Search Engine News Recap

I also have a couple of German Podcasts like MyGermanClass. I’m always striving to keep my German skills sharp.

And I’ve totally overlooked the primary reason I was interested in owning an ipod… my music collection. I’ve started to master the art of playlists and my new ipod makes all of the time in my car much more enjoyable.
