Hey guys. I've been thinking, and I realized that one of the reasons that I spend so much of my freetime on the computer is because I'm always on YouTube so that I can listen to MUSIC videos! I figure that I can still have a life and listen to music at the same time if I get an I-pod! That way I won't have to tune into a computer to listen to all the addicting tunes that I want! Money is not an object in this case, because I figure that if I'm going to go out and get an I-pod, I might as well get the best thing that's out there on the market right now! But I have no idea where to go from here. My friend has one of those I-pods that's got a flat screen, and it's TINY, which makes it seem easier to get stolen, but it also seems so much more accessible. Thoughts? I popped into the I-pod store at a local mall last night and it was so overwhelming; I didn't know where to start looking. I need some ideas from some tech-savvy ladies! Give me an idea of something that's easily accessible- I plan on hooking it up to a cassette in my car, it's one of those casettes that's specifically made to connect to I-pods so that you can listen to the them via car! Also, couldn't you connect the I-pod to the cigarette lighter plug as well? Sorry if I seem so uninformed lol. I just decided to get with the program and get me one of these babies! I'd love to hear what you guys have to say!! Also, what's the most sufficient way to download music? Is it extremely expensive? I have seriously, not joking at all, like 1000+ songs that I want to upload, and I have a friend who has around 3000. I asked her how she could afford such a wide range of songs and she said that she downloads illegally on Limewire. Is that the only way to afford a plentiful amount of songs to upload though? I'd hate to spend a ton of money on an I-pod only to find out that I can only afford to upload 20 songs. I apologize in advance because I know that all of my questions in this post seem like a bit much to swallow at once, but I'm really urgent to know a bit about the matter, because I plan on getting one soon. So let me know what you know! Take care girls.
