What is the one thing you can't, or don't want to, live without? When you set-aside the basics of food, shelter, and clothing, for me, the one thing I could not exist without is my iPod. It holds the music that brings back so many memories.

When I'm feeling blue I can lighten my mood in a matter of minutes by indulging in my favorite upbeat songs. If I need a little nudge to get myself to the gym, I can think about listening to my favorite singers serenade me as I workout.  When I just want to relax, I can listen to slow jams and reminisce about good times in my life. Music helps me in several different ways and I just really enjoy listening to my tunes.


One of the things I like the most about my iPod is that it holds all the songs that are dear to me. My playlist is filled with tunes from my past and current numbers that I like. I have fast numbers to get me going and slow ballads when I want to take it easy. But the best think about my playlist is that it is MY list. Only my favorite songs are on this extensive list, which seems to be getting larger and larger!

Say Cheese

Although music is the reason I got my iPod, it can do so much more. For starters, I can take photos with the Apple iPod touch. The unit has a 5-megapixel “iSight” camera built-in so I am able to take beautiful photos in regular or panorama mode. In addition, I can also switch to video mode and capture those special moments that I want to relive or share. The iPod has come such a long way in such a short amount of time. It's amazing what the new iPods can do.

Games People Play

Now, if music and photos are not enough for you how about games and apps? I can download apps and games from the Apple App Store. With over 700,000 apps and 100,000 games, I know I will find what I’m looking for.

This iPod is more like an iPhone because it is equipped with Siri, Safari web browser, iMessage, Passbook, email, FaceTime, Maps and Game Center. It seems as though the only thing you can't do on an iPod is use it as a telephone . . . perhaps one day in the future.

iPod Accesories


My iPod has so much more, including ear pods that deliver the most amazing clutter free sound for superb listing pleasure. But the thing I enjoy the most (other than listening to music) is the access to the iTunes store. They have all the classics and new music that I want plus I can purchase songs directly from my device. This is one thing that I use almost every day.
