Suitably Impressed after being Suitably Unimpressed

Don't you hate it when you go out with the deliberate intention to spend money, and come back and the only thing you've spent is time?

Due to a variety of reasons I had decided on the weekend that I was going to go out and buy myself an Apple iPod Nano 4G. None of the places I went to had them. Most of them had the 2G model, but not the 4G model. Since the 2G model is $299 and the 4G model is 20% more ($359) for double the capacity, there was no way I was buying a 2G model. After running around all weekend trying to find one and not succeeding, I eventually gave up and went to the apple.com.au shop and bought one online.

The cheapest I had ever seen the 4G model for was $355, a huge saving of $4. Since I think I had wasted more than $4 worth of petrol running around trying to find one I figured I may as well get a "full price" one. However, the apple store included free postage and free engraving on the back, so I think it was probably worth it.

I also ordered an arm-band holder for the Nano, and the Nano dock.

This morning while I was having a shower there was a knock on the door. It was a delivery from apple with the arm-band holder and the dock. Considering I only ordered it Sunday night, which means they wouldn't have been able to do anything with the order until they started work Monday morning, I am very impressed.

Now just to wait for the Nano itself to arrive. I should get here by the end of next week at the latest, but hopefully will be here by Friday.
