Bought an iPod Mini for the daugther back then instead of the Shuffle. This year I bought her an iPod Touch.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

Bought an iMac 24" 2.8 GHz on eBay for my 18 y.o. daughter. She is still using a Cube connected with a 23 inch ADC ACD but she is always using everyone elses' computers. I now have the oldest computer in the family - a 2.3 GHz dual G5.

My mom has been using a 400mhz Pismo for years. Since they were new. I've been trying to talk her into a new computer for quite some time. She was finally convinced, it was just the money. So my mom, sister, brother, and I agreed that she would buy a new mbp (previous version bought discount) and she would not buy us any gifts. And we wouldn't buy her any. So she now has a brand spanking new mbp! And can't get over how fast it is! And bright! I'm going to replace her netgear A router with a G router as she's not realizing just how much faster web pages can load. I also bought her Pogue's Missing Manual for her birthday.

It's an early mbp Christmas for mom smiling smiley

I ordered a a new 16 GB Nano on Black Friday for my SO.
I wanted the red one and the engraving. I think it was $12 off plus free shipping. It came from China and arrived on my desk at work on Tuesday morning. Pretty speedy for free shipping.

She has agreed to be a switcher if I'm willing to put office on a new Laptop. So sometime this spring we'll pull the trigger on new Apple laptop. I'm not sure which one, I'm thinking of the Air since I really liked the form factor of my 12" G4 powerbook. I gave that to her Mom, since I'd rather do tech support on that than a handmedown Windows machine.

I think my parents might finally upgrade their G3 SE iMac (it runs 10.4.x, with maxed out Ram and new HD). New 20" iMac for them, I think.
