Hi, My name is…. and I’m an Apple Addict.

Actually I have a split personality (Mac and PC literate) but when I’m in the Apple store, like that garden, there’s temptation at every turn.

Luckly, the last time I went to the Apple store, the guy was nice enough to tell me that the iWork package was cheaper when brought online as opposed to getting it in the store. This is all in line with Apple’s initiative to go paperless.

December 27 – Ordinary Joy – Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? (Author: Brené Brown)

There is nothing like children, especially around the holidays. Even though I am an aunt *many* times over, they always provide lessons through their discoveries about the world around them.

My two year old niece stated that she wanted an iPod. I knew that wasn’t going to happen, so instead I ran into the next best thing. A friend of mine told me about the preschool monkey games When I Grow Up and  Monkey Preschool Lunchbox and how another two year old enjoyed them. So, I downloaded them both to my iPod Touch and let her borrow it to play the games.

I was surprised how quickly she caught on. She’s was so proud of herself when she solved the puzzles and counted along. It was this simple moment that brought me joy.

Disclosure: As of the date of this post, I am a Sprint Customer. I have a few months left on my contract and am examining my options for my next mobile device.

Just in case you haven’t been paying attention, Sprint recently announced a new product to its offerings. An accessory for the iPod Touch.

The Sprint ZTE PeelTM turns an iPod touch to a connected 3G device. You can connect another wireless enabled device to it.

The monthly service plan is $29.99 plus fees and taxes with no annual contract and it provides up to 1GB of data via 3G.

My option at this point is to hold tight since I have both an iPod Touch and a Virgin MiFi Mobile, which has a  $40 monthly unlimited broadband plan.

Also, I’m still waiting to see what Skype is going to do about number portability and I’m a bit weary about the 911 issue.
