Last night, I finally decided to buy an iPod nano. I have a little crush on the 4 GB white one, even though Mac products are totally not my type. But I am SO SAD to report that none of the L.A. Apple stores I’ve called have them in stock. If you call, you get a vague recording asking you to stop by and “experience the nano” even though stock is limited. I don’t want to freakin’ experience one! I want to take it home. If you press 5 so a real person picks up, they explain that they do have the 2 GB white ones in stock, but who wants one of those? Normally, I’d just buy the one I want online, but there’s a 5-7 day wait before it’ll even ship.
If anyone has a hot tip on how I can get my hands on a 4 GB white nano in the next few days, please let me know. Maybe I should just be patient, but I’m getting a little Veruca Salt-y… I want it now!
Update: After calling numerous Circuit City, Best Buy, Frye’s, Target, and Melrose Mac stores, I got an email from an awesome blogging.la reader that said the USC bookstore had “tons of iPod nanos.” I called, and sure enough, they had a 4 GB white one in stock. The following conversation ensued:
Me: “Do you have to be a student to shop there?”
Store guy: “Well, that’s sort of the idea…”
Me: “I’m not a student, but I really want a nano.”
Store guy (reluctantly): “Um… come on over.”
Once I got there, and they rang it up with a student discount, I figured I was about to get booted out of the store for not having a student id. But then I mentioned how I had forgotten to bring my id with me, and everything worked out perfectly.
Okay, I better go feed my new baby some songs…
