It’s been one and a half years using the iPod Touch. I bought it for $300 at the moment.(since it is 1st generation..)
It has been working fine for me. As a personal organizer, scheduler, email client, iPod, web browser, game console, dictionary, map, weather caster, and so forth. I can say it was worth the money I paid for it.
Now, I have iPhone 3G S. It does better job for everything now.
I think it’s time for my iPod Touch to retire.
Of course, it’s not like broken or not working properly. It is just not needed to me anymore.
So I am thinking, what can I do with it?
Should I give it to my brother when he comes back? He has got an iPod nano months ago.
Should I sell it for a cheap price? like $50? oh no it’s too cheap..
Should I use it for my home entertainment? then it requires more stuff to buy, like speakers and home stereo system + ipod touch dock.
I just don’t know what to do with it.
Today I tried to test iPhone 3G S speed test using Speed Test app from Ookla.
I tested three different networks: Edge, 3G and Wi-Fi.
First test result is Edge.
Second is 3G.
Download: 470 Kilo-bits
Upload: 310 Kilo-bits
Last is Wi-Fi.
Download: 6 Mega-bits
Upload: 930 Kilo-bits
I can’t believe 3G is that slow.. Or is my Wi-Fi too fast??
Sometimes AC in my office doesn’t work well.
Ben, my supervisor, always had this fan so I wanted to have one like his.
And finally I got the same one!
It has a clip to hold a part of desk or cubicle.
Funny thing is that the fan itself is about $10, but shipping is $8 and tax is $2.
Final cost : $20. WTF!
My previous HP laptop was broken due to Bios update problem.
It was totally HP’s fault, but they charged me $400 to fix it. What? No way!!!
I was basically waiting for a Windows 7-installed laptop which will be launched this year or next, but couldn’t wait longer because of school projects.
I bought this for $800 including tax and shipping from Bestbuy.
It has 4gb memory expandable up to 8gb, and battery last about 4~5 hour long.
The only disadvantage is that The whole keyboard is glossy, so now I see my fingerprints everywhere on it.
Anyway, I am happy with this.
