you could be a part-time model

boo pandora — i don’t like how the desktop AIR app now requires an upgraded PAID account to download. looks like if you already have it installed, it’ll still work… but still — it’s been bugging me lately too: limited skips in an hour, ads, same songs… etc

so i started lookin’ for other means of internet radio and “found” (yea i’m late to this bus) last.fm — and it comes with an AIR app as well (it’s a bit buggy — still version 0.2 and last.fm’s data center malfunction might’ve been the cause)

made some purchases over the weekend —

got this bad boy (geoff got one too, paid with bananas, of course! boo yah)

i currently have a winXP and ubuntu dual boot setup (but i’m thinking of trying win7, since geoff has given it rave reviews so far)

it’s sick — it’s good for sports scores or general email — uses a lot less energy too

then ordered one of these sandisk sansa clips (1gb) — at that price… i couldn’t let it pass me by

and then i finished it all up with an iPod/MP3 player kit for my car — i’ve been getting tired of XM lately so i’ll be cancelling that now that i have this. the kit is a little quirky but it can play non-iPod players, which is where the sansa clip will come in… i’m very happy about this — something i’ve been wanting for my car for soooo long

they actually did a good job at bestbuy!
