I'm a bad influence

Apparently, I'm the reason my colleague (who sits in the cubicle beside mine) has bought an iPod. After all the raving and exulting upon its arrival (I had it delivered to my work address) and happy sighs whenever I'm plugged in, he picked one up at the IT show a couple of weekends ago.

So today, we bonded over the iPod packaging and how amazing it is to have filled up only a couple of gigs with the first few lots of CDs and about how we can't live without our iPods even though we've both had it for less than a month.

And then we went back to work, both plugged into the respective soundtracks of our lives.

Cool. Interesting how iPodders bond. I sometimes nod in silent aknowledgement to strangers with iPod when I walk around on the streets

They were selling iPods at the IT show? How come I didn't see? Aieee! I will become one of the Pod people one day!

Same thing is happening at my workplace - after my constant enthusing about how the current iBook is the most bang-for-buck Mac ever, two of my colleagues are on the verge of buying iBooks, another is seriously considering replacing her old G3 Powerbook with a shiny new iBook. I'm really looking forward to the day when we can run a lunchtime MoHAA game at work over our wireless ... = )

three years ago, only my ibook existed in the staff room. now there're two more colleagues with ibooks: one 12" and another 14". and a third one is convincing her (mac-using) hubby to get a Mac-mini for her! it just gets better and better.

I've noticed my own tendency to iPod-spot as I'm wandering the streets, but I've yet to knowingly meet someone's eye and nod. In my experience, Singaporeans don't usually know how to react if a stranger nods or speaks to them in a friendly manner.

I wonder if that "jack into my iPod" trend would ever materialise here ...
