Tips To Justifying Your iPod To A Non-Technical Person

Aug 18, 2007
So you just bought your iPod and you proudly bring it home or to work to show it off to your family and friends, thinking they will flock around you in awe. Not the case, they ask, why did you go and buy an expensive thing like that? You, of course, are shocked to think they think so lowly of your newfound investment. If you have ever encountered an experience like this, or maybe you will in the not so distant future, here are some things that you can say that will make your peers understand the iPod just a little bit more.

First, you might want to tell them that for the price of an iPod, you get more than your moneys worth. The storage on an iPod is superior to any other mp3 or music playing device. The ability to store literally thousands of songs on one little device is something to be proud of.

There are a numberless possibilities to what you can do with an iPod, and you are not limited to just listening to music. Your iPod already comes with other devices for you. For instance, you have games that will keep you busy during down time at work or if you are waiting for the bus. You also have the ability to store a pretty large amount of photos for you or someone elses viewing pleasure.

Your iPod already comes equipped with a notes feature for you to store important remainders or class notes. Of course, the iPod comes with a contacts and calendar function. Now you can have all the contact information for the important people in your life right at your fingertips! You will not be able to forget any of their birthdays or anniversaries because your iPod has a calendar to remain you of important events like these.

Did you tell your friends that your iPod is also a communication tool as well? You can make your own podcast to share with anyone in the world. Just think your own radio station right at your fingertips. Your friends thought you blew your money on another mp3 player. Podcasting is becoming more and more popular and celebrities are starting to use them to add a level of intimacy with their fans.

Did your friends know that your newly bought iPod could be used as a learning device? They did not? Well, perhaps you should inform them that your iPod could help you store notes for class that you will be able to review at any moment you want. You can also listen to educational podcasts at any time of the day. The iPod is not just for music enthusiasts anymore. You can even store a writing project on your iPod by using the notes feature. Who would object to buying an iPod when it will help you learn? I know your parents would not be able to argue with you when you tell them that!

Your iPod is also an ideal device if you have more than one computer that you use. For example, a college student who has a computer at home but also a computer at school that they use. With an iPod you are able to transfer music from both computers onto the iPod.

The iPod also has a great battery life. If you are going on a long plane ride or road trip, your battery will probably outlast them both, coming in at just under fifteen hours before it dies, the iPod is an ideal device for long trips.

So, the next time someone asks you why you want an iPod or why you bought an iPod, just remember all the things you are able to do with an iPod. From communicating with people from all over the world, to learning, to even helping you with work, the iPod is a universal device that is not just for listening to music anymore. When your parents ask you why you want an iPod, simply tell them that it will help with your education and will also keep you busy when on long trips. Or, if you need to make a person realize just how useful an iPod truly is, you should point out everything that an iPod is capable of doing.
