Nano:
-My 15 minute subway ride to and from work/school (not only do i not need 20 gb of music for the subway, but the nano fits in my pocket, where as with keys, a wallet, and a cellphone, a normal ipod makes me look like i stole some oranges.
-Running/Working out. The leather arm band that you can get for these things is perfect. I have an armband for my 20GB and it blows, plain and simple. Plus, the nano and the armband weight roughly 0.00001 ounces.

iPod:
-Trips, where 4gb of music is clearly not enough, and size is not an issue.
-Firewire drive for large videos/animations for school, especially nice for files that are too large for a DVD
-Hooked up to my bose sounddock in the living room.

I realize that it might be overkill to have 2, but I bought the 20GB almost 2 years ago, and the battery just isn't what it used to be. I hated not being able to listen to it to/from work and at work without having to charge it.
thats the way i think of it as welll... im going to get a nano for all teh outdoor stuff i do

I absolutely LOVE it. I would never have one as my only portable music player, but if you can swing it, it's definitely worth the money. Especially with the educational discount. It's so light you can't even feel that it's there half the time.

online, or the apple store, it doesn't matter. however, i think to buy software with the educational discount you have to do it online, but i'm not sure.

You can go to your Apple store and get edu discount, but if you do it in person you need to provide a student ID. Online, they just trust you. Haha.

Well, if you ever saw any of the AP "Featured Videos" when they were actually online, that was my section. However they kind of disappeared, Jason randomly deleted all my privileges, and I can't seem to get ahold of him or anybody else, so I'm not sure I technically work here anymore. Haha.

Schweet. You didn't take me out for my birthday last year. But Finch would have been hard to top.

agreed.

the new imac is pretty sweet though. i know its a lot thinner than the recent model of the g5. either way, whatever. the remote control thing is pretty dope too, but how fucking lazy are you to walk 3 feet from your couch/bed to turn up the volume? if that's the case, you're probably fat, and have man boobs.
