InstaPundit joins iPod "cult"

Glenn Reynolds, Mr. InstaPundit himself, recently got an iPod and seems pretty tickled about it. An endorsement from someone like him is likely to push Apple's stock even higher... That little gizmo is finally enticing more people into buying Macs (what virus threat?), and clever new applications for it are being devised all the time. I use mine to repeatedly play back songs that I'm learning for the guitar, to back up the critical portions of my hard drive, and as an alarm clock. I was a little miffed to learn from Glenn's blog post, however, that has a special offer: you buy four $15 iTunes cards and get the fifth one free. Not knowing about this deal, I recently paid full price for five iTunes $15 cards as Christmas presents. Arghh!
