I purchased a 16GB iPhone for no good reason and a Mac Book AIR for no good reason. I'm not filthy rich, but nobody will suffer from any of this, except my retirement fund. I do not plan to retire. I wanted to practice medicine when I was 8 and never changed my mind. It is the only life I've known and cared for. I will retire when my health forces me to. I have good genes. My grandMa died at 97 because she had no access to medical care. I hope I can live almost that
long and be useful to the end. If I go downhill, I pray to human beings to take care of me promptly, even though I'm an atheist. I pray they get an automatic riffle and end it for me. Nobody should suffer a lengthy death unless they really want too. My end should be my choice,

Meanwhile, I want to experience as much as I can. There is no doing it over.

Whoo! That is one setup.:eek: You must be exited. It's not like you just threw the money away, you will have a pretty current laptop for a couple years at least and your old 8gb iPhone has pretty good resale value if you want to recoup a little.

I'm with ya I bought the 16gb iPhone without really having a reason. Still had 5gb left on my 8gb phone. I won't get the Air though. I like my MacBook well enough.

Everyone has to die one day. Be happy that you will die having owned one of the greatest inventions known to the human evolution. In addition, you should be proud that you have owned 'em right after the release and you have lived to watch the release of the iPhone in 2007. :)

I am happy with my MBP's, have 3 now...keep handing down the last generation to my wife and kids, slowly trying to create a Windows-free zone in my home. If I could find some better synching software than Time Machine, I'd likely spring for the Air. But it gets difficult keeping your files synched up between two different PC's all the time.

There is seldom a good reason to buy the next thing, whatever that is. But then if you think about it...what was your "good reason" for buying the previous generation?

I've quit trying to apply reason to my gadget purchases. It's a fruitless endeavor. Instead, I just embrace my inner geek and tell my wife "Hey, at least I'm not a coke addict!"

That worked for everything thus far BUT the Zune. Even she laughs at that thing.

well i was within my 14 day return period, so i just took my 8GB back to the AT&T store, 100 bucks more for double the capacity was worth it to me.

I like the Zune 80. As for the first Zune, not so much.

Wow, that was quite a post for only spending a few grand! I'd love to see what we would find out if you were to buy a new Porsche, lol.

Regardless, glad to hear from another atheist. We live on a higher plane :laugh2:

Maybe if the Porsche was iPhone compatible. ;)

By the way, I'm atheist as well. :laugh2:

ahhhh gadget addiction. Gotta love it!
Srsly, off topic for an iPhone forum but....

What do you like about the new Zune versus generation 1? And how well does it handle WMV video files?
