Apple Re-Released The iPod Touch, And It Definitely Has Me Curious

Does everyone remember the iPod Touch? Oh man, was that a time to be alive. This was the thing to have as a kid prior to iPhones because literally, you had the world in your pocket. Games, videos, internet, long battery life. The iPod touch had it all. However, Apple did the strangest thing and re-released it in 2019 with some new updated features.

If this wasn't news to you, it should be, because you should be asking yourself, why should I buy an iPod touch in 2019? Well, I have attached a review for you here that was done by someone else on Youtube.

iPod touch (7th Gen) unboxing + review: is it worth it?

Alright, so what do I think? As much as I love the iPod touch, it's gonna be hard to justify what you're gonna use it for in this day and age. The iPhone does everything the iPod Touch does and, obviously, its also a phone. The iPod Touch starts at $199, but if you pay 50 bucks more, you can get an iPad. So, who would be buying it?

Maybe you can get it for that little kid in your life that always wants to play games on your phone. Maybe you can use it as a strict one use device like in the gym or in your car. Maybe, you just buy it because nostalgia sets in. However, this is all a solid maybe.

Okay, here's my deliberation. Would I buy the iPod Touch in 2019? Since I have a 256 GB iPhone XR, my answer is no. However, if I had a kid, and I needed something to give to him or her to keep them busy, I'd definitely consider it. It's essentially a device lost in time, and I think Apple did a decent job of updating its technology wise for it to be relevant nowadays. Apple arcade is going to be a thing now and the iPod Touch could spearhead playing iPhone games on your phone offline and all the other good game stuff you could imagine. I am gonna wait and see who is gonna buy this, but right now, it's a one-trick pony.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
