    Got my ipad mini. His name's Apollo. No big otterbox defender case this time; just a simple cover. So small!

    MLB, which size? The 27" is nice and big.

    That's the size I bought. Unfortunately it doesn't ship for 2 or 3 weeks. But you can never have too large a screen. :)

    My iPod's name is Prawn. :D

    (All my Apple devices have fish names. Trout, Prawn, Mackerel, Haddock, Cod.)

    Yeah I'm really unimaginative with the name tag for them, just '(my names) ipod' etc. Should really change that.

    I have never felt the urge to name anything that wasn't alive.

    I would dearly love to be able to get an iPod Touch (mine is a Classic) but the Touch maxes out at 64GB, and I have more music than that. The only place I ever use my iPod is in my car, and thus all considerations of "cloud" go right out the window. Can't have a cloud without internet access!

    I'm gonna go and pick me up a GoPro Hero 3 when I can. I aim to get a lot of skiing in this year and bought myself one of those helmets you can attach your camera to. Here's the awesome promo vid:

    It's the device name for when it connects to itunes on the computer.

    Yikes, I know I'm picky but I only have 20.

    But in the spirit of the thread I bought 5 albums recently lol.

    A note about the new iMacs: The 27" model has a little panel on the back that easily pops out when you want to add more memory. The 21" version, on the other hand, requires disassembly of the whole back panel.

    FYI.

    ^I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to add more memory to mine. My iPad is named Junior, because it looks a bit like a baby iMac.

    So you got the new, thin screen? Nice! No disc drive, though, right? Well, there are external drives if you need one.



    Our big imac is Agamemnon. The ipad 1 is Antares. My new mini is Apollo. The 4s iphones are Ares and Artoo. The old iphone 3Gs is Alarm Clock (no use as a phone, so it's basically an iPod). The real ipod is Hermes. And the macbook is Achilles.

    We got a theme going. Not fish, though.

    My cars have been Griffin, G'Kar, Grommit, Gally (Galahad), and Gilly (Gilgamesh). The last two are our current vehicles, a light blue Highlander and a royal blue Camry Solara.

    At least they're not all named "Dr. Hofstadler" or "Arthur." Hmm...maybe I'll change "Hermes" to "Arthur."

    About 20 bucks of stuff for the nieces and nephew's Christmas stockings. And I still need to add at least 20 dollars more worth of stuff.
