The Daily Ping

This Ping redesign took 7 years and cost $58 million in taxpayer dollars.

Creative Nomad

As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it. With 20 gigs of storage, upgradable firmware, and a good reputation, the Creative Nomad looks like a wicked piece of equipment. And at just over $300, it’s not terribly overpriced (like the iPod).

I never thought a MP3 player that didn’t double as a CD player would appeal to me, but the idea of being able to store 500 CDs on it (or any type of data, really) makes me drool. The software also sounds like it’s quite full featured and the display screen isn’t too shabby.

Someday. Someday I will own one. -ram

Yeah, the idea of having one's entire music collection in a pocket is nice. I'll still wait for the iPod, as I prefer its dainty size over the Nomad.

If you haven't played with one, Ryan, stop at an Apple Store. ;) In seriousness, they have Nomads on display to tinker with.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
