Tired ...
tired of waiting for Auna to set up my telephone line/adsl (three months lost) I decided to change provider.
tired of waiting for Amazon to send me the Triola's CD.
tired of waiting ipodyourbmw to be available in Spain.
Ada's Blondie CD seems to be sold out. Don't know (yet) what Other Music can do for me
My computer refuse to burn CDs.
And it is Monday. And cold wave is coming to Spain.
But still... Madrid sun and Furry Phreak's Want Me (Like Water) brighten up my days.

New iPod shuffle or ...
how to sell a defect as a virtue. Defect: It doesn't have a screen, so you cannot see what's playing or choose next song. Virtue (according to Apple marketing department): It's cool, so what you hear and what's next song is a surprise, and that's exciting. Literally: 'Enjoy uncertainty', 'What will it play next? Can it read your mind? Can it read your moods?' Well, I am not buying into this. But let's see how does it work in the market, probably well.
