|I finally got an iPod mini!
And I didn’t pay $400-$1000 for it on eBay. I took the advice of a friend of mine who is also an Apple employee. He told me to call the Apple Store because they occasionally get them in stock. (The wait is 6 weeks from Apple online.) So I called the Apple store every morning, and sure enough, yesterday they got some in.
I now have several audio books and about 3 days worth of music on it. (Meaning if I played my music continuously, it would be three days before I had to listen to a song a second time.)
The controls took some getting used to, but once I figured it out, I couldn’t imagine why I hadn’t been able to figure it out right away!
I’m very happy with my new toy.
