Hated simplicity: The iPod

Defending the iPod against those who berate its ease of use and interface

The iPod is often a recipient of as much criticism as it is praise. If you got one of the holidays then you will probably find yourself in a conversation about how the iPod is just another trendy gadget that is more asthetically pleasing than it is functional. The article from the link above actually rebukes a lot of the criticisms quite well. The iPod has some worthy competitors but all of them struggle so hard to do what Apple seems to do so simply.

Merry Christmas and a happy holiday

I would just like to wish everyone a happy holiday. The year is winding down and it is a good time to reflect back at what the year has brought us.

The biggest thing for me has been my new daughter (http://www.saipetch.com/ekm/) . Christmas was good but juggling family and timing wasn't so easy. We bought a new 61" InFocus DLP projection TV and Crate & Barrel tables for the family gift. Mallory got a lot of clothes, a piggy bank, some dvds, some Baby Einstein music cds and an activity gym.
