My Creative Zen

I forget the occasion that I received this as a gift from Jeff. Christmas? Birthday? Mother's Day? I'm sure he will remember- he's got a good mind for that sort of thing.
Anywho- I have to admit that this is one of my all time favorite gadgets.
We all know about my little TV habit here at work... and that my time is limited with June 12 being next week. Thanks to my Creative Zen, I've already weaned myself from my antenna TV.
I've previously only used my little gadget when traveling. It's great when waiting in an airport or bored in your hotel room. But he's been loading it up with shows for me and I've been watching/listening at work. I have also loaded my music on it and I can even listen to the radio!
So far... I've gotten caught up on Big Love, I've gotten hooked on True Blood, and am currently on the last episode of the current season of Chuck.
Anyone have any suggestions on what movies or shows Jeff should find for me next?

I'll get back to you on recommendations, but first... what exactly IS that adorable litte gadget? A handheld television receiver?

Alix said...

Oh, and do you have a Kindle yet?

It's a handheld media player. You can load MP3's or video files or pictures... doesn't receive live TV but does receive a radio signal. There is an updated version of it... mine is a couple of years old. The picture is amazing, the sound is amazing. I love it!

I don't have a Kindle, though. Not sure I want one. Not sure I don't. But there is something about holding a paper book, turning pages... the smell, the sensation.

Roger that, Liz. I think I agree. And yet, technology is so intriguing...

I can't even begin to think of stuff to recommend because I am overcome with jealousy. I want one of those!

Where do you get the stuff to put on the player? I'm with Alix when she called this post incomplete and non-informative. Oh, what's that? She didn't say that? Oh.

Anything that you have on DVD or whatever- you can load onto the player. So... you can get stuff from the library or Netflix or stuff you buy...

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!!!!!!!! (The new one.)

Seriously, it's not just for geeks. I mean, I don't think it's just for geeks; being a geek I wouldn't know for sure. But it's got fantastic plot lines, incredible character development. SUCH a great show.

You've just made my husband a very happy man with that suggestion, Beth!! I know he's watched every season of it... hmmmm...
