Bought a Xbox

I almost forgot. Last week I bought a Xbox. First I was looking for a Playstation 2, because I was able to play Grand Tourismo 3 at the weekend. While I wasn't able to get a PS2, because all had been sold before christmas, a workmate told me about the Xbox and that it is much more fun than a PS2. He has both, so he should be able to tell.
Getting a Xbox wasn't that much easier. No store had one anymore. My last call was at Toys R Us, and they had two Xboxes available. I had to take some kind of special edition with two controllers, which was a good deal. I would have bought a second one for my girlfriend anyway.

News on Apple

You probably read it on other sites yesterday and this morning: there are some neat news on Apple. Mac mini and iPod Shuffle appeared in the last 24 hours on Apple's homepage.
For details take a look there. I am looking forward for that iPod Shuffle, because it seems that is the first MP3-Player from Apple wich is affordable. But I am kinda sad, that it got no display at all. I know that is the gag but I don't care!
