Touch touch me baby! June 5, 2009

So I broke down this week and bought an iPod touch. I’m not going to give it a full review since so many people already have. I will tell you about my experience with it so far.

Typing. For the first day I couldn’t believe how slow I was typing on it. Such small letters and big thumbs weren’t mixing. Then I leaned to trust the iPod and just kept typing past my mistakes. The iphone os knows how to auto-correct nearly 95% of my errors. Now I’m typing at nearly full speed. Definitely much faster than a normal cell phone.

Twitter. If you only twitter from a computer then you’re missing out. I’m not completely portable like I would be with a blackberry or iPhone but checking for updates from my couch is nice.

Blogging. Well thanks to RSS reading blogs is pretty easy. Also with the right app posting to your blog is a piece of cake too. However, and this is a problem for me, commenting on other blogs is a royal pain in the ass. Filling out all the fields turns a quick comment into a long affair.

Email. Oh emm gee! I love getting email in my pocket. I send more emails now. I reply to others faster. And my total favorite thing is when I send email. After it’s sent it makes a “woosh” sound. It is now my favorite sound ever.

Calender. Very handy. I no longer need a computer to keep track of important dates.

Portability. I wrote this entire post during a 20 min drive to work. Well I wasn’t driving lol I’m not that talented. It’s just really nice to use this time in the car for something other than listening to the radio.

Wishes. A camera would be cool, along with a built in mic. Then it would have almost the same features as an iPhone. Other than that I couldn’t be happier.

Oh I think this thing plays music too? Lol but really what doesn’t play music now a days? I think I can download ringtones for my toaster. No offense to any Cylons out there. Hahaha sorry I’m done.

Along with the naked photos you’ve been sending me of yourself you can “Woosh” me anytime.

Glad you’re happy with your purchase. I have a Blackberry, and I’m still a little slow on it. I was born with Sausage Fingers, so they’re lil pudgy things, AND it doesn’t correct my mistakes.

The autocorrection is super handy. Although it doesn’t correct spelling for me, which is a major bummer. I’m not the best speller and while typing on a tiny screen I don’t feel like spell checking by hand. Or by finger, lol

As for naked photos, clearly you must have me confused with one of your other male bloggers. Unless of course the pictures are of a super hot guy, in that case … oh yeah that’s me, I just look a little different in person, lol

I always thought I was a good speller, until Google and other sites came out with the red squiggly line under words. It’s then that I realized that my spelling blows like the wind. Part of me even wishes that I would have canned the Blackberry idea and upgraded my iPod to the iPod touch. Since I have Verizon, I can’t get an iPhone. Sad shame.

No, they’re from you. No need to be so shy. I didn’t tell you to stop 😉 But I’m gonna stop before I seem like some weird predator 🙂

Hey! Where have you been hiding? It’s been a while since you posted…

How do you connect to the internet on the iTouch, just through wifi? I am seriously considering a iphone to go with my new imac I bought a couple of weekends ago….

Patrick - June 6, 2009

I’ve been around. I was actually in DC for a day, I need to get pictures up on Flickr then post about it.

Yeah the iTouch uses wifi for connection, so it’s not really an “always on” device. If you don’t mind being on AT&T’s network and want a smartphone then the iPhone is easily the best option. I wouldn’t get one right now though, Apple is having a developers conference soon and will likely announce a new version of the iPhone. Then you might have a choice between saving some money on the current phone, or waiting a bit and getting the newer features in the next gen iPhone. This conference will take place next week, so if you’re an Apple lover then it’s sure to be exciting.

You’re a huge dork. Ha. But we already knew that.

Hi.

So I was updating my Reader to my new e-mail address affiliated with my blog.

I was disheartened to notice that you haven’t blogged in a while.

Lezgo.

Love and Lollipops,
Katie
