Liz Prince (Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?, Delayed Replays) has contributed a comic strip to the music site “if you make it” about upgrading ipods when they still work. (Click to see the whole strip.)
I’ve gone through the same thing, which got me thinking about how strange it is to have to upgrade something when it still works. We have a first-generation iPod (the one that’s the size of a deck of cards and has the mechanical scroll wheel) that thankfully still holds a charge, as well as a couple of newer ones that do video. On the bright side, it’s nice to have something you can travel with that won’t break your heart if it quits working or gets lost. And I guess it’s a testament to Apple that their products still work after so many years. My frugal side wants to stay happy with what I have, but it is tempting to expand the toys when they’re relatively cheap and so much of an improvement.
Plus, I adore the happy little faces Prince draws on her music players!
