staying behind the times

i’ve decided it just isn’t worth it attempting to stay hip with all the latest technologies. just when i think it’s a good idea to get a relatively new piece of hi-tech gadgetry something new comes along to show it up. for instance, i get a Nintendo DS for christmas two years ago; what happens a few months later? the DS Lite makes its way to shelves in all its Lite-ness. it happened before that too. i remember being so excited about my iPod mini. heck, the Apple website doesn’t even bother putting it on its list of products. so i thought, maybe i’ll just go ahead and get one of the super-duper 8gb ones with video capability. then today i see an advertisement for the iPod touch… i just can’t win.
