We travel the world more than anyone we know. We’ve been to places on this green earth that even God probably doesn’t know about. Wherever we go, we always have three very close friends with us…Madonna, Edith Piaf and George Michael. Yes, we know. Edith Piaf is dead, but we never said that she herself was with us on our trips. We live La Vie En Rose through her music. And while Madonna is too busy adopting African babies and George Michael is overwhelmed trying to find new ways in which to lewdly conduct himself, we still send them postcards because we’re constantly thinking of our friends.
The last time we climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to watch the sunrise over the African lowlands, we were blasting George’s Freedom 90 on our new iPod shuffle. And that’s the truth! You want to know what else is the truth? When we pushed play on the iPod, that damn thing said outloud to us “George Michael…Freedom ‘90”! We thought we were hallucinating from the lack of oxygen at 19,340 feet up. Did this little thing just speak to us?!?!
We had to make sure we weren’t losing it, so we went to the next song, and the thing said to us “Madonna….Express Yourself”. Turns out this little gadget has a new feature called VoiceOver which enables it to tell you what song is playing and who is singing it. It can also tell you the names of your playlists opening up a whole new way to navigate your music. And when you’re beginning to hallucinate on the top of heighest point in Africa, you’ll need all the help you can get.
Now, we never leave home without it, and for only $79, you probably shouldn’t either.
