nano nano~

It's mine!

Boy think it's his new toy...chum.

Yeah..couldn't resist it! Had to get my hands on the iPod nano..But damn, why couldn't the headphones be black in color? Gotta get myself a Sony black headphones then i guess...

The first thing Aidan did when he took the nano out of the plastic wrapping was place it against his ears and "hallo hallo.." Alamak~!.

For a better perspective of the unwrapping of a new iPod nano, check out cowie's latest entry.He got the whitey though...

ikepod, another nano owner just gave me this link..omg, the poor iPod nano! They did a series of 'stress test' on their nano to test how vulnerable the li' bugger is..
Here's an excerpt :
To simulate everyday accidents that could result in a broken iPod, we came up with a few situations that we felt would ultimately leave the nano lifeless:

:Sitting on the iPod nano
:Dropping it while jogging (4-6mph),
:Dropping at various speeds: 8-10mph (slow bicycle), 15-20mph (fast bicycle), :30mph (slow car), and 50mph (fast car)
:Dropping the nano from various heights.

Our first test consisted of placing the iPod nano on a solid wood chair and sitting on it, as people are prone to do from time to time. As you can guess, this "test" yielded basically zero damage results—so little, in fact, that we didn't even take pictures.

For our second test, one of us held on to the iPod, jogged about 20 feet and dropped the nano onto a sidewalk. This proved pretty uneventful as well and the nano didn't even skip a beat..

And the nano proved to be almost unbreakable. It could even withstand a car running over it...amazing!

Even after it had died, the poor nano couldn't rest in peace. They had to play csi and do an autopsy of it~


Hubby is in Vienna now..He did asked me whether he should postpone his trip so that I won't be on my own but then again, I'm not exactly alone at home right :) Told him not to worry and to go ahead with his business trip. At least this time round, Aidan seem to miss his daddy more. He's been calling Daddy Daddy non-stop, especially before bedtime. Hubby will be pleased :)

Here's a video of Aidan just before his bedtime (click on picture).

Been trying to teach Aidan to speak Mandarin. We've both been speaking to him in English and had only realised the importance of the second language recently (duh!) Hubby, whose knowledge of the language is worse than mine tasked me with the duty...Gonna start slowly by teaching him how to count first. My grasp of the chinese language ain't fantastic either so I guess I'd better learn the right ennunciation or else I'll end up teaching the bugger the wrong stuff..

Alamak Aidan sounds like a little angmoh boy learning mandarin!
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:18 pm (UTC)
haha hanor! I thought so too but I only taught him last week only. Yeah..will have to make sure he gets the right 'tone'..Sad to say, own chinese also quite half-past six..wish I'd been more diligent!
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:21 pm (UTC)
Oh boy, Aidan is so cute. *pinch pinch* :p
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:38 pm (UTC)
yeah..still in his 'cute' stage..and still has chubby fats on his cheeks :)
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:27 pm (UTC)
wah.. didnt noe they are having nano in black. they dont have it in store yet rite?
hee. realised tt aidan is quite flexible in the video, he can bend his leg quite straight. ha. have you considered letting him learn kids yoga so tt he wont grow up to become inflexible?
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
i'm sure they have both the black & white in the stores though someone said that the black 4gb is sold out already. Apple must have effortlessly moved quite a number of iPod nanos..
heh..really no time to send him for other classes. We're at work on weekdays and he has his playschool and weekends are for us and him :)

Sep. 13th, 2005 02:44 pm (UTC)

somehow, i wasn't tempted by the ipod, mini and shuffle but i just couldn't resist the nano!
Sep. 13th, 2005 02:58 pm (UTC)
me n my friends just got the white one for my hsemate. just arrived today. it's amazing!! ive never seen any mp3 player that small and slim and sleek. now my mini ipod doesnt look that good! :(
Sep. 13th, 2005 04:31 pm (UTC)
heh..it is definitely much sleeker. I think the mini ipod devalued greatly with the arrival of the nano :P
Sep. 13th, 2005 03:08 pm (UTC)

wah the lil' boy's learning mandarin now!!
noticed tt he cant pronounce the 's' sound properly. wonder if that's the case too when he speaks english?
Sep. 13th, 2005 04:29 pm (UTC)
yeah..same with english too although he can do sssssss very well when i ask him what sound a snake does..He seems to be pronouncing his s as x. Just hoping he will improve with time :) I didn't correct him much coz i was videotaping him but usually, we wil try to.
