Wired editor succumbs to iPod mini

“For several weeks I’ve been avoiding the iPod mini like a nasty disease.

At the grand opening of the new Apple store in San Francisco, the iPod product manager, Danika Cleary, tried to persuade me to check one out, but I refused.

‘No thanks, I don’t want to hold it,’ I told her. ‘I don’t even want to look at it, because then I’d have to buy one.”

I know the seductive power of Apple’s products, and the iPod mini gives off irresistible ‘buy me’ vibes. The mini casts a spell, a shopping hex that pulls you irresistibly toward the cash register.”

If people want to spend $300 on a portable audio device then that is their business.  Personally I think that spending $250 on a 4 GB model is a waiste of money when in 4 months the unit will be obsolete.  If you can afford $250 then an extra $50 should not burn a hole in your wallet.  I guess Ryan is living below the poverty line.  No offense but if you are in support of the mini, what is an extra $50.  If you arent in support of any iPods then what are you posting your comment.  Take then to Rio, Philips, or Sony where you can buy units that have more memory for less but you will end up returning the units one month later because they are cheap and you will like the style of the iPod.  You will never know why people want iPods until you have one.  I bashed iPods stating that they were crap.  At the time the 10 GB model was three hundred and the 20 GB Rio Karma was the same price.  After two weeks the Karma broke and I hesitated to get the 15 GB.  After getting the iPod, I have no regrets.  I will never change to another mp3 player, untill the new iPod comes out.
