Now gadget lust is acting up again..
If Globe Telecom will allow data tethering I’ll probably buy the iPhone 3Gs because I’m now in the market of buying an iPod Touch.
The new refined unibody MBP seems to be a sensible upgrade because of the 7 hours* battery life but I’ll try not to since my current last gen aluminum MBP still serves what I need. Frankly, a Mac Pro can be a reasonable one if the price is not so prohibiting, this will best paired with my 5D Mark II’s 21mp image files and Full HD videos. But I’ll definitely upgrade to Snow Leopard irregardless.
It’s the year of financial breakdowns for many and it seems these tools “gizmos” are magnets to our hard earned cash. I know myself, sometimes I just need to be flooded with the tech specs and my GL (gadget lust) will diminished. I hope that will work again.
But “one more thing” I really like the new iPhone 3Gs, I already skipped 2 generations and just settled with s60 symbian smartphones like the e61i and e71.
