Meri list

  • A laptop
  • Calvin and Hobbes Comic Strip Collection
  • An MP3 player complete with headphones and FM
  • A rich silk saree
  • Motorola mobile – RAZR Slim :)
  • 2GB USB drive
  • Home PC ‘upgrade’ (I want to prolong is as long as possible since I am really looking forward to Bro dear using this ‘piece of junk’ – as he calls it. Youngsters these days hardly know the value of money :()
  • A banana platter meal - morning, noon and night
  • A list of books which I have been wanting to purchase for a very long time, and which keeps on growing like Hanumanthana baala
  • A week-long vacation in some obscure place
  • Perfume(s) (I have to admit that I am quite crazy about them)
  • Ondu voriginal pearl set


Very simple needs for a very complex person?
:)


My wish-list for my birthday which is nearly six months away, the compilation of which was triggered by a book sale which had the entire (including the latest) collection of TinTin, each costing > Rs. 400. I remembered the toota-phoota collection which I had garnered long back, and which Bro Dear apparently (and conveniently) ‘donated’ to one of his friends and forgot all about it! Double sheesh......


And every time I keep reminding myself - “If you cannot forgive your own, who else can you forgive?”


And it helps because murder is a capital offence in our country.......


Ultimately, I know that I will not spend a single pi on myself but what the heck..... list banane mein kya hai?...:)

One ipod (even 4GB nano) will eliminate the need for a MP3 player and a 2GB USB drive.

It wont give you FM, though, but receivers are available at every signal, no?

chitra said...

-/Viky
cost(One IPOD) > cost(one MP3 player + headphones + 2GB USB drive) alvaa?

Viky said...

One 2GB ipod Nano:
1. Plays MP3 independently
2. Displays photos
3. Plays videos
4. Has clock, alarm, contacts, calendar.
5. Can be connected as is to speakers, and car stereo.
6. Can be used as USB drive.
7. Style quotient.
8. Sits in the right-side quarter pocket of your jeans.
9. Apple quality.
10. Costs 9000

MP3-USB combo:
1. You have to carry MP3 CDs.
2. Cannot view photos.
3. Cannot play videos.
4. No clock, alarm, contacts, calendar.
5. Needs lot of wirings to be connected to speaker/car.
6. MP3 player cant be used as USB, though the vice versa is true in some cases, which I'm assuming is not the case.
7. Zilch.
8. Needs a waist-case to hold the player.
9. No Apple quality.
10. Sony MP3 player 5000 + 2GB USB Drive 2000 = 7000.

In spite of the cost difference, Ipod is a clear winner, no?

Astrix and Tin-TIn du soft copy naDiyotta?

angada said...

30GB iPOD with 4GB video memory is the best. It costs around 12K.
Laptop - buy a Dell Inspiron E1505 or E1705. It costs around 40 and 45K respectively.

Soft copy ide nanna hattira. Hard copy kaavaali :)!

If you can be done with soft copies of Asterix, C & H , TinTin, you dont need to wait for your Bday. Pester your dear friend Angad to download it from IIT servers

chitra said...

Tee hee...I like hard copies. Soft copies are not the same as reading the fine print in books :)! Anyhow, thanks for the suggestion....
