IPod Nano

Ok, I know I told Ginny that I wasn’t going to get an IPod (after she got her IPod mini as an early birthday present) … but this IPod Nano looks pretty cool.

I had thought about getting an IPod Shuffle at one point … but I didn’t like the idea of not being able to control the song that is playing. This new entry in the IPod family looks like a good cross between the mini & the shuffle.

Of course $250 is a bit much to spend on a MP3 player … but who knows. Maybe the price will drop soon. 🙂


Found a new online service that looks pretty cool.

It’s called GVisit. It uses Google Maps to track where people, who visit your website, are coming from.

This is extraordiarily cool … even if they think that our house is about a block south of where it really is.

Google to unveil desktop search

[Google] has created Google Desktop Search, a thin-client application that lets people retrieve e-mail, Microsoft Office documents, AOL chat logs and a history of Web pages previously viewed, all via a Web browser.

This sounds kind of cool. I’ll be interested to see what they do with it.

A while ago Alta-vista (I think) created something similar … but it never took off.
