My iPod Photo fits nicely into my Macromedia team jacket.Today, I shoved off into the brave new iPod world as the vortex has finally sucked me in. Today, I am no longer an iPod virgin. My iPod Photo has finally arrived, and the world is good again.

Seriously, I decided it was time to take a look at all that iPod hacking, podcasting, and audio blogcasting going on. I've loaded up my modest mp3 collection of 1900+ songs in about an hour, and the Old 97's are happily humming along in my head right now. Just 8GB so far with plenty of elbow room for my entire digital photo collection.

The iPod phenomenon is really amazing, and I'm surprised that it took me this long to dive in. There are people who use it for just about every purpose under the sun. People who cook by it. People who just want to keep their iPod cozy and warm while still being stylish. Personally, I'd like to catch up with those who want to use it with Linux, and others who want to run Linux on it. So if you see me on the street just tap me on the shoulder coz I might not hear you ;-)
