I really like the IPod product - versatile, convenient and just loads of entertainment/educational potential for my ~2 hours of public transit commute each day.
With more and more news and entertainment mediums adding video Podcasts this little device has become a cool way to pass the commuting time. I enjoy reading on my commute, but watching an interesting show or funny movie can pass the time at record clips. I won't be surprised if I ask the engineer to make another loop so I can finish watching my movie before heading into work :)
I wonder when Mr. Kyte will be Podcasting some material...
I'll be in Oracle training next week attending the Oracle Database 10g: Performance Tuning (Database) class. It should be a really good course. I'll be blogging some of the interesting takeaways from the class, so stay "tuned"!
