some years back, i won an 2GB iPod nano in a competition. not being one for mobile music, i passed it on to the girl who was in primary 6. she warmed up to it & eventually, it seemed like the ear plugs were perpetually attached to her ears.
2 years back, the battery started to fail & she implored me to get her battery replaced as she can't study without them. the new battery is about half the cost of a new set, so i got her a new 8GB one instead. i posted it here.
now, that has given way as well. it seems these china-made screens & batteries don't last long. although i had previously agreed to get her an iPhone after she's completed her O-levels, she now asked if she could get a new 64GB iPod touch instead of the iPhone.
it arrived this week......
....except that i got her a 32GB unit with this message......
was i being mean?
nah....i'm just a loving father with a cynical sense of humour.
