Uh oh... Someone gave me an iPod Touch

I was given an iPod Touch in January and it works as a PDA ! Syncs with desktop MS Outlook calendar and contacts. Right back to my digital weakness. I am using paper as an additional back up so I have 3 sources of the same data.

ooo free is great!

As long as you don't forget to back up – ENJOY that iPod Touch :D

I work on a mac and just had my second hard drive crap out on me this year! i definitely am glad that I started backing up stuff on paper after the first crash...

having technology fart-out on you is devastating. I've lost so much!

Ouch!

Sara,

Having two drives go out in one year is unusually often. Have you thought about setting up an external drive as a backup using Time Machine, that is, if you're running OS X 10.5? I just did that and I'm hoping it'll save me if something bad happens to the drive. However, most drive problems I've had have been with external drives I have attached to my computer. Fortunately, I've been able to recover stuff before it disappears completely. If I hear anything unusual, or something acts flaky, I try to back it up right away to another drive.

Hope your luck gets better.

Ooh, lucky you!

I've been using an iPhone as my PDA. Same as Touch except for cell phone, camera, and a few other things. I sync frequently to keep it backed up. Also, I have my iCal and Address book (on my Mac) synced to the iPhone and have iCal syncing with Google Calendar, so I can access it anywhere. That's my three legged backup.

Still carry around a paper notebook/planner too.

Have fun with that Touch! There are a lot of things you can do. Believe it or not, you can even make phone calls using Truphone (www.truphone.com). You have to have WiFi access to do that though.
