How Fuddy is my Duddy?

As much as I like really cool technology, I keep moving toward an iPod and then always move away. I make sure I always update my Mac software so that I'll be ready for an iPod if I ever take the plunge, but I can't see the need to have that much music that readily available. All of the old technologies serve me just fine whenever I want to listen to music. (But then I very seldom turn on the radio in my car either!) What would impel me towards this technology would be the availability of material other than music, and the new video iPods are tempting, but even downloaded TV shows don't make me rush to buy.
