Mark Schmidt's Abode On programming, writing, gaming and life...

Every once in awhile, HP rewards its employees.  The program is quite nice because they give you a set amount of money and you can go to a website to pick how you want to spend it (e.g. gift card, merchandise, traveller's checks, etc...).  I usually end up getting either a CompUSA, Barnes and Noble, or Home Depot gift card or a combination of some sort.

I received an award today so now its time to figure out what I want to do with it.  Usually when this happens, the guilt phase sets in.  Should I get something that the family and/or my wife can use or should I take the selfish route and get a new toy for me?  Currently, an iPod is catching my eye.  For reasons that I'll rant about later, I have to listen to music at work.  I have one of those Nomad Jukebox 2's, but it's too cumbersome to take to the gym.  An iPod Mini looks like just the ticket.  So I go to CompUSA's website and see the 15 Gb iPod for $299 or the iPod Mini (only 4 Gb) for $249.  Only $50 less but over 11 Gb less in storage space.  Ok, so now I have to a) decide if I want to be selfish and b) if I do decide, do I go with the mini or the 15Gb iPod.
