Last night my wife asked me that question that we all dread. It went something like this “So, you have bought an iMac and Mac mini this year, 2 2G iPod Shuffles, a 1G iPod Nano with Nike + sports kit, a 23″ Cinema HD Screen, 2 Wireless Keyboards, 2 Wireless Mighty Mouse (or Mice), and an AirPort Extreme. You wont be buying anything next year will you?”
My response, “But darling don’t forget that the iMac, iPod Nano with Nike + sports kit, one of the 2G iPod Shuffles, a keyboard and mouse were for you”. At that point I looked at her face and realized yet again that I had mistaken a question for a statement!
Married for 14 years and I still can’t work out when a question is a question or a question is a statement.
This is a bit of a problem as I was already working on my wish list for 2007. With the above purchases even I know that Santa wont be popping any Apple stuff into my stocking this Christmas, but to go cold turkey for the whole of 2007!
To be honest I don’t have that much on my 2007 wish list:
– I would like to pick up an iPod Nano with Nike + sports kit as my wife loves hers and as she has just started a blog to support her personal training business I have a feeling I will be getting fitter next year. I will look for a 1G model on eBay as this really will only be used for running, but I will probably take a look at the new wrist band that has just been announced.
– an iPhone is certainly on the list (potentially). I have no need for another phone or iPod (with the exception of above) so this will be purely driven by form factor, and to some extent price. So if I like the look of it, it works on any network, and comes in around the current rumored prices I will probably get one.
I should probably get excited about the iTV (code name) but I am not. My current set up is fine, or at least should be by the end of the year when the final parts arrive, and I can actually stream recorded movies across my existing network. Although slow it works – hmm, maybe a new AirPort Extreme with “n” technology may slip onto the radar at some stage. My biggest concern with the proposed iTV though is the fact that it only seems to work with iTunes content, and I have no interest in downloading movies from iTunes.
Not a very exciting Apple wish list, but that is probably a good job because I have my eye on a Nikon DSLR , but please don’t tell my wife – I want to enjoy Christmas and then break it to her at the right time.
So what is on your Apple 2007 Wish List?
