the past is a different country ... [Oct. 29th, 2012|11:08 pm]

I was supposed to be editing a commercial for our play this evening - an email from the writer has knocked me somewhat off keel about it, so instead I'm procrastinating and reading old LJ entries. Which is when I came across this particular gem:

I don't want an iPod. I don't need to carry 10,000 songs around with me. 10 Gigabytes of music is probably far more music than I own, let alone listen to on a regular basis, and that's the entry level for iPods, so I'm safe.


I currently have a 64Gb drive on my phone and there's 50Gb of music on there, which is about 2/3 of my collection.

I'm really not cut out for a job as a futurist.

No-one will ever need more than 640k.

Heh. I said something similar about smartphones. Now I use mine all the time.

I still don't have an mp3 player though. Well, I do have one that someone gave me, but I've never used it. Having music with me isn't enough of a priority for me to learn to use a new piece of tech.

I have a ridiculously huge ipod which is more than half full, but I use it the most for work. Dance teachers do need to carry quite a lot of music with them.

Though I do remember a couple of years ago wondering why I had a smart phone. Now I don't know how I coped without one.

"Why would I need a phone that accesses the internet?"
