My new Nano

I bought the 1st generation Apple Nano from BestBuy some 7-8 years back and it was gathering dust because of my iPod. Apple recalled the old Nano because it was posing safety risk and a month back I got an 8GB silver Nano as a replacement. It took more than 3 months for Apple to replace it, but I got the new Nano a month back and extremely happy with it.

It works fabulous, but the only gripe I have is that there is no iTunes for Linux. When I tried to sync the Nano with Banshee, the Nano was crashing and had to restore it on a Windows machine. I need to spend some time on how to get sync to work on a Ubuntu machine.

BTW, my 4 year old son is very comfortable using LG Optimus One (Andriod) and iPAD (iOS) to play music, watch pictures and play games. The way many of us grew with bulky monochrome monitors, RAM in MBs, HDD in single digit GBs - many of the kids are growing with smart phones and tablets. When they grow and get a chance to decide for a  tablet or a pc, there is no doubt on what they will pick.
