Art Hides Ugliness

The Woolworths construction project has now been decorated with 'art'. We can appreciate this colourful spectacle as we sip our coffee at Epitome. Personally, I prefer a Monet or a Constable, but I guess the council has a limited budget.


Yuko bought her iPhone a few weeks ago and has been nagging me to get one too. I have been reluctant to purchase the device because I'm not convinced it's particularly good as a phone, or a iPod. I've had an iPod Touch for a while, and I still prefer the 'classic' interface.

Despite these misgivings, I took the plunge and we went to Chatswood, where there is a new Apple shop.

We parked at M6

At the shop, we looked at the new model iPod Nano. I would like to buy one, but I would feel guilty given that the iPhone is also an iPod.

Yuko checks the iPod Nano

Of course, you can't just walk in and buy an iPhone. You walk in and make an appointment to buy an iPhone. We expected this because Yuko had to do the same thing. So I made an appointment for 2pm and went back to Lane Cove to have lunch. I returned to the shop at 2pm and went through the process. Because today is Sunday, and tomorrow is a holiday, I will have to wait until Tuesday before my number is ported and the phone actually starts working.

I thought this would be an appropriate time to take stock of our iPods. It turns out we now have eight between us! All but two (the white ones) still work...
