Schmipod

I don't get the whole video-on-your-iPod thing. I've watched video on my Portable Media Center; two episodes of House and one of The Simpsons. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a traumatic experience, but it's not great. I certainly wouldn't pay $1.99 a show for the privilege, even if the shows were ad-free. I'm not interested in the idea when they're free for my decide; paying money is out of the question. I even considered taking shows on the plane with me, and decided to screw that idea, just because it's a terrible experience. Watching something light like a rerun of The Simpsons makes more sense than a drama like House, though. Even on my 19" monitor, watching TV on a "big" screen lets me focus on it. Watching it on a 2-3" screen does not.
