No, No Nano

One of my beautiful and delightful daughters convinced me that an iPod Nano would be adequate to my needs and cost much less than a Classic which costs too much.  $150 is a lot of money, but… do-able. On my last trip to Costco, I happily picked one up.  I was so excited.  I looked forward to listening to the Satellite Sisters podcast a day late at work as other wonderful radio offerings.  Alas! And wouldn't you know it.  The Nano and our computer refuse to talk to each other and I have to take it back.  It's not just me, my best computer tech geek gave it his best shot and went down in defeat.  No Nano for me.  I really miss the Satellite Sisters!


  1. I feel your frustration.

    Who are the Satellite Sisters?

  2. I forgot, I was going to put up a link for the Satellite Sisters, but I was rushed and forgot. The Satellite Sisters are 5 real sisters living in different cites who have their own radio show (I think they still do), podcasts, site and blog where they share news (personal,entertianment, national, and world), talk and laughs. Especially laughs. Listening to them makes me happy. Or rather MADE me happy when I COULD listen to them.

  3. I bought a Sandisk Sansa (I think I paid less than 40 buck for it).. and I have an FM recorder on my PC that records FM radio broadcasts...



    (A couple of links for you...)

    E250 = 2gb
    E260 = 4gb
    E280 = 8gb

    I dont know if you are a mac or PC, but the Sansa works PERFECTLY with my PC!

    - - - - - - -

    I used to listen (off and on) to the Satellite Sisters - they were on one of the stations I listened to all the time!

    One was in Russia, one (or two) on the west coast... etc.. They were not too bad, but geared more towards the "kinder, gentler" gender...

    I think they are just podcasters now... but I could be wrong.

  4. Have you thought about a Zune?? I just love mine and it does so much. I am not sure onthe price, but I have a bubblegum pink, 80 gig and it cost me 200. I think a smaller gig may just be the ticket. Ipods are very compatible to Apple (obviously) and the Zune is Microsoft. Look into it.

  5. I chose an iPod because we have a Mac at home. A rather old eMac. For some reason the updates don't work - unless we want to spend a lot of money.

    It is not technically our computer.
    It is on loan from our charter school - and has been now for over a decade. It was used when we got it. The computer is old and the school no longer issues computers, so they are not going to use it, but when Ben graduates high school in 2010, the school will take it back. bummer.
