1. Cell Phone
Yeah, I said I was happy with the Motorola v265, but I guess I wasn’t happy enough. I turned that baby in and am now using the LG VX6100. Better screen, better camera, better menu interface… just better, I guess. My only regret is the lack of iSync support with LG phones, but I guess that’s reason enough for me to work on an Applescript to automate the importing and exporting of records from BitPim.
2. iPod Headphones
One of the absolute truths in this modern world is that iPod ear-buds are horrid… I know it, you know it, we all know it. If you’re a “budget-conscious” guy like I am, I can recommend the “The Plug” from Koss. I can also recommend that you read the few pages at Headwise.com that deal with improving the performance of the The Plug. Even without the modifications, The Plug is a huge improvement over the stock iPod equipment. Be aware that Best Buy and Circuit City may try to overcharge you for a set of these… $14.99 is the MSRP, and both retailers wanted $20 for ’em!
