I spoiled myself today. I received my annual bonus at work and I outright spoiled myself. Actually, for me, that would be an understatement. I splurged so much it isn't even funny. What did I do? I went out and bought a 4GB iPod Nano _and_ a PSP (and all sorts of accessories for both of them).

When I came home and unpacked my babies from their packaging, I came upon a realization: both of these devices are incredibly sexy. I don't mean they are sexy as in "cool". I mean they are "feel a tingling in your virtual geek loins" sexy. They give me the warm fuzzies, they truly do.

The iPod. Wow! I'm just going to come out and admit it. This was my first experience in an Apple store buying an Apple product. I'm speechless. Apple sure knows how to build products (and a store for that matter). It feels like every little detail about the iPod was meticulously designed, right down to the packaging itself. That's right, the packaging was some of the best designed packaging I've seen as well (no lie). I can certainly see why Apple fans are Apple fans. A quick game of word-association when looking at this sucker would instantly yield the word Elegance.

The PSP is pretty impressive also. It may not be quite as sexy and elegant as the iPod, but it still has its own vibe. When I powered the sucker on, my heart skipped a beat. The screen is so crisp and clear. The graphics in the games are incredible. I think the gamer within me is in love. I feel the coming wave of joy from many future gaming moments I will have with this device.

I just had to mention these things because of how utterly impressed I was with the design of these devices. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must ask your leave as I really wish to be spending time with my new babies (not that spending time with all of you is all that bad).

Go play with my new toys I must :).
