Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

my stereo system, circa 2005

When I was in the US last I had a 5-disc Technics CD changer, and the main reason I had gotten that was that even then I resisted the idea of having to switch CDs every single time I wanted to listen to something different. So one of the things I got recently at the Apple Store here in Palo Alto is a set of JBL Creature II speakers. Connected semi-permanently to the iPod's dock, I drop the iPod on it when I get home at night and I can listen to any of my music. I know this sounds kind of obvious, but actually doing was a pleasant surprise at first. All my music in a tiny package that can be easily moved around the house (if necessary), or taken on the road. On top of which, the Creature speakers have really excellent sound, and they're not that expensive at around $100. This idea of data portability is partially what I wanted for my dream portable of 2005.

This post reads like an ad. Oh well. Call me a satisfied customer.

PS: Also cool: at night, the green light under the satellites makes them appear to be tiny ghosts, as in old-fashion-bed-linen-covered ghosts, hovering motionless over the carpet. :)
