When I won my first iPod at an event for my company (two jobs ago), I had debated off and on whether to buy one for many months before. As a runner who on occasion enjoys a long run, I had a tendency to get bored on the runs and I thought music might help with that. Ultimately I decided not to purchase one and then….I won one, and of course I loved it.
My husband soon owned one too and now we have owned many iPods over the years – mini (first one), classic, and nano (several generations due to loss of them over time). We just recently finished getting all of our cds into iTunes and hope to be able to use it as a juke box of sorts soon.
My next step into the iLife was the purchase of a MacBook. I had again himmed and hawed over whether or not to purchase one. I coveted a black one for a while. When I received a bonus, I used it towards the purchase of my very own MacBook (black of course) – love it!
We had checked out the iPad last summer as we thought it would be a fun, but also thought it would be too pricey for a fun gadget. I attended a conference and entered my business card for an iPad drawing. We went away on vacation and when I got back, I read my email to discover that I had won an iPad. I did not believe the woman that sent me the email at first as the winning announcement was at the very end. And, yes it really is worth it, because you don’t really need a computer for everything.
I started eyeing the iPhone many moons ago, but it was not available on my favorite carrier Verizon. When the Droid came out, I started there, but always had my eye on the iPhone. I debated whether to stick it out with the Droid, but my hubby gave me a beautiful iPhone 4S for my birthday last year – love it too!
And, so there you have my iLife. Feel pretty lucky since I won several of my first Apple products.
