video ipod

Alright, I know I have about a million things from mission trip that I need to talk about and get you guys up to speed. On top of that I actually have writing work news to update you on and about 5 or 6 new ideas to put up here on the site. But I wanted to first let you know that my old ipod mini is officially dead so Meredith (aka the greatest wife in the world) gave me a new one for my birthday (she gave it to me a week early so I could have it on my trip too). I have to admit that while it is a bit overpriced you can’t beat Apple’s style, and you can’t beat itunes with a stick. I love it!

Meredith claims this is the last piece of electronics I can buy, though, so if I am going to get a xbox 360 or the new Wii I will need to make some outside funds. I tried to convince all of my youth to give me 32 dollars since today is my 32nd birthday, but they just laughed in my face.

    OK, so did you get the 30 GB or the 60 GB? What videos do you already have loaded onto it? How’s the battery life? Fill us technophiles in on the details.

    I got the 30 GB version. Battery life for music is spectacular. Video playback battery life is much less. It is around 2 hours or so, but I haven’t really done extensive testing. The videos I have on it are mainly video podcasts (Comedy Central’s Motherload, Diggnation, and Strongbad Emails) I also have a few episodes of lost that I picked up when I got behind.

    They look really good on the small screen, but I don’t know when I will ever want to just sit for an hour and watch my ipod. I guess if I road public transportation it would be different, but I don’t see much need for watching hours of video.

    Update: I found a time when I can watch video podcasts–sitting on the toilet!

    TMI – Thanks though. Are you sure 2 hours worth of video playback time is enough for you, considering your viewing venue and activity?
