I'm really going to try hard to resist this. But it's so pretty.

I was talking to my colleague yesterday and told him about how I'm still upset that I lost my ipod touch and I don't feel like spending $300 on another one. Then he said I should just get a used first generation iphone, because he said on ebay they're probably about $50. Why didn't I think of that? Has anyone ever bought an iphone and not use the phone service on it? I assume all the other features will still work if I don't sign up for the phone service from AT&T?

The only thing I'm worried about buying a used iphone is the battery. I assume just like ipods, the iphone battery cannot be replaced once it's fried? What's the life of the battery?

I had no real necessity, but I randomly traded in my "old" iMac for one of the new 27inch quadcores earlier today. I got a much better trade in rate than I was expecting, figured why not. I'm quite happy with it for the 3 hours or so since it was acquired.

oh wow, you can trade in computers? how neat. how does it work though with all the files on your computer? i'd assume you're sort of forced into paying for the one to one feature.

I just transferred all my files and bookmarks to a portable harddrive. I think most shops will do the transfer for you, but will charge $75 and a take a full day to do it. It took me about an hour and a half to move everything over I wanted and delete all the stuff on the computer myself.

yeah, apple's one to one thing is $99. and yeah, when i transferred my stuff from my old mac to my new (at the time, anyway) one it took about that long too. their thing is a total rip-off really when all they do is hook both up with a firewire cable.

Our local Mac specialist, non-Apple Store, store offered $400 for our MacBook--pretty good considering it is a year and a half old. I trust them to delete any personal info, too, which is why I wouldn't sell it on EBay, etc.

I bought a used Mac Titanium off EBay, and while it was a good deal, the guy left all sorts of personal things on it.

haha really? i haven't owned a secondhand computer since 1997 (well, that was the last time i bought one, i mean) and sadly i don't remember any of the previous owners having left any personal info.

it's crap like that though is one reason i've never considered selling any of my old computers. the closest i've come is offering my old pc to my mother.

I personally used my last computer as target practice to make sure the hard drive was wiped clean. Numerous bullet holes through it probably did the trick.

Mine are a thriving dust farm in my basement.

Shooting them sounds like more fun--that 3rd Gen iMac has been sitting there mocking me for too long.
