A touch of class

Mac Format - - AP­PLE TALK - An­drew Smith

My Ap­ple Clas­sic is the iPod touch (1st gen­er­a­tion). I’ve been a com­puter user, builder and dis­man­tler since I was 18 (I’m now 50!) and had looked at Ap­ple prod­ucts with long­ing for many years. As a mu­sic lover, I was go­ing to get an MP3 player to lis­ten to my stuff on the go, when in­stead, my wife bought me the iPod touch. I loved it from the mo­ment I got it into my hands. I loved the qual­ity, the feel of it and the ease of op­er­a­tion. The touch­screen was al­most too easy to use. That was un­til some, ahem, so-and-so broke into my car and stole it.

It was, how­ever, the spring­board to mak­ing me the Ap­ple fan I am to­day (I can’t be a fan­boy though – too old). Since get­ting the iPod touch, I’m on my sec­ond MacBook, sec­ond iPad (my last one was bought at the Ap­ple Com­pany Store on In­fi­nite Loop!), sec­ond iPod Clas­sic and third iPhone. I’m also wait­ing (very im­pa­tiently) for the iWatch to be re­leased. But my ‘Clas­sic’ will al­ways be the iPod touch that set me off on this Ap­ple-flavoured jour­ney!
