The day finally came, early January 2005. My iPod came, and I was anxious to open it and get it running. I had previously owned the 5GB First Generation iPod, which was really good. The big moment finally came, the opening of the iPod Mini. I rushed through all the rappings there it was, incased in a cardboard cover with screen cover still on it. I lifted up and was surprised by its weight (3.6oz). The iPod did need charging (I already expected that), so I hooked it up to my brother's Cube and I was away! I did then notice that it failed to have First Genereation USB, only second and the same with Firewire, luckily I had a solution though. After a bit of cable finding I was on my way to go! I had transported all seven hundred songs that I wanted on it, and then took it out of the Mac.
Putting it on wall charge, it took roughly just over an hour (Eighty minutes tops) to complete charging. And then the big moment came, sound quality. Although I love to use Apple's Official earphones, my brother had given me a £40 set of earphones to use instead (He was the one who wanted the Apple ones!), and so I accepted (my earphones: Sony MDR-EX71SL Xtra Power Superior Sound).
And then, my first venture outside. I realised that my dad had bought me the Incase Leather Sleeve carrier, straight from Apple's site itself. But it wouldn't fit! It actually wouldn't fit, it struggled to get in and once I did get it in, I could barely get it out. But, Apple do supply yuo with an Additional Official Apple strap, so I used it instead.
And that leads me up to where I am now, listening to Music on my iPod whilst typing this review to you, another possible consumer.
