Steve's birthday is coming up in a couple weeks (#33) and I think he'd like an ipod or something similar. Any advice or opinions on what's good, least expensive route, etc.? I saw there are ipods and all other gadgets on ebay, but I'm not sure if I'm confindent enough to buy from an online auction (the last auction I set foot at I ended up coming home much poorer and 66 acres in hand). We are so behind the times when it comes to techno gadgets and such. Here's the rundown: newest TV 1999 - no HD, no digital, will probably need to purchase those special receivers for all our ancient TV's once the signal changes next year; music at our house = a 3CD boom box. No mp3's, ipods, etc. The girls both received portable CD players this year. All our cell phones are the very basic model - no texting going on, no cameras or videos - just phone calls. Video cam circa 2001, no digital capabilities b/c at the time I was too scared to deal with anything that combined a video recorder and a computer. Still my excuse. So, needless to say, I'm a little unsure of the techno waters and would love some input. Then once I purchase something, I'll have my 4 and 6 year old kids teach me how to use it!
