I am obsessed with my iPod. Seriously, I think I need an intervention of some sort. I had the 20G one for about 2 years, then a few weeks ago ol' Poddy kinda crapped out on me, so I drove my butt to Fry's to get a new one. I was without an iPod for about 30 minutes and it was scary. So now I have a new super-duper 30G video iPod. Wooo! Long live Poddy II.
So anyway, it's always bothered me that I can't really listen to it at work. I can do the headphone thing, but that's pretty much frowned upon. I can't use the USB hookup to just have it play through the computer because that would involve me installing iTunes, and I can't do that to the work computer either. For a while I tried to use the FM transmitter in conjunction with the boombox we had in the office but it almost never worked, probably because the boombox was brought over on the Mayflower.
Seriously, check out this old-school shit. And yes, that's a wire coat hanger we have for an antenna.
But today as I was listening to my iPod in the car, it occurred to me that I might be able to use the cable that hooks my iPod to the auxiliary jack in my car stereo somehow. I brought it in, and after testing several different jacks or ports or whatever they're called (I know nothing about computers) I found one that worked! So right now, I am totally rockin' out to my leaked copy of The Decemberists' "The Crane Wife". Yay for my iPod! Yay for my brain!
And I will buy a copy of "The Crane Wife" when it comes out, so shut up.
