    My windfall came in Saturday, so yesterday, iBenji and I went to Costco. I picked up the touch. With tax, the total came out to $303.02. Not bad. It was like getting it tax free pretty much. I brought it home, and lo and behold there's a tiny bit of light leakage. With a case, you can't see it. I'll be checking on it periodically and will return it if it gets worse.

    When I plugged it in to do all thew synching and charging, it got pretty hot initially. I was a little worried, but was willing to give it a chance. Within an hour, the heat backed off considerably and I had all my apps organized the way I want them. No more heating issues.

    The I went to Bestbuy and picked up an Grip Graphix case. I'm not overly thrilled with it, but will keep it until iBenji gets his touch and pass it on to him.

    I like the homescreen wallpaper and the multitasking quite a bit. The camera is okay, but nothing to write home about. The video camera works well. No clicking while filming. The wifi is always at three bars now, which is good and things run faster than my old 8G. The music sounds about the same, maybe a little crisper than it did on my old one.

    Buying at Costco was a great experience and I'd strongly recommend there over anywhere else if you have a memebership. Best Buy sucks. While i was waiting there to see about a case, a guy walked in wanting to buy a 32G and was rudely told it was sold out. I told him he should go to Costco. Screw Best Buy.

    Overall, I'm happy about it. LOL @ iBenji. He was more excited than I was. I'm just getting over the crud and just wanted to get the damn thing and come home. He couldn't get why I wasn't more excited. He insisted on opening it and was so cute about holding it and wanting to get it all synched. He's my little iPod buddy!! Everybody needs an iPod buddy!!
    Well, I'm feeling pretty busted, so I'm off for now. Have a great day!

    I know what you mean. I went to buy a new iPod for me and brought me friend Harvey. He was a little tipsy because we shared a bottle of wine before and when in the shop he accidentally stumbled into the decor. He can be clumpsy sometimes, but what you expect from a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka.
