This Is Why I Can Never Be BFF With Apple (Yet Continue To Buy Their Products)

Those folks over there at Apple just don't get it. And even if they do, I still think they're jerks. I've had the old school iPod Mini since its inception. A cute little pastel pink one that has been hanging on for dear life for the last 9 months. It works some of the time, but not most of the time, and I just can't bear to let it go. Why, you ask? Because the Nano doesn't come in pink. So I've been holding out.

Until Christmas, when G. bought me a new one. Being the loving and wise husband he is, he bought me the next best thing to pink, which is, naturally, red.

But, looksey whoosey popped into my inbox this morning. Just in time for Valentines Day. Blast it all to the moon! I swear this love/hate relationship I have with Apple will be the death of me.

Pink is their new color?! Don't they know that pink and tiny go hand in hand?

Is it too late to exchange?

So cute by the way.

I've been holding out for this! Just think how cute when the iphone comes out in pink. I'll ditch my pink razor phone so fast!

Blasted Apple! They're notorious for this kind of make-you-want-a-new-one-even-though-you-already-have-a-new-one behavior.

That's weird. My comment got cut off. My fault. Too many hypens, I guess.

Oh poor Jamie. But I'll admit, the way you wrote this made me smile and I thank you :)

my little sis got a new iPod for Christmas and just exchanged it for the touch screen one this past week. She had even downloaded songs on it and deleted them. It had been purchased at Costco. I say try to retun it. If not, buy a pink cover for it.

Be well, Jess
