Wonderful Toys

Is there a gadget or other toy-like item you can’t live without?

For me, I can safely say that the iPod – despite what I originally said – has really changed my life. Finally, I can ignore people anywhere instead of having to wait until I made it to work. What a relief!

I just got an iPod Shuffle for my birthday. But now to put any songs on it I need to buy a new computer.

Guess I'll still be listening to 20th century technology personal stereo with cassette player for a little longer.

Both my son and I are avid backpackers (in my case, it's mostly WAS). He can't live without his GPS. I've used them on ships, but never in the forrest. Personally, I'm quite happy with a chart and compass.

It's not hard to ignore people, it gets easier with practice. And yes, iPods are awesome, especially for music nuts like me.

iPods are very kool (yes, i know how to really spell "cool") but I'm cheap, so I'm getting a 120-song mp3 player.

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!
