Replacing my Stuff's been a few months since my hard drive crashed and my computer screen got wrecked and all along I've been debating what to do about that and replacing my iPod that was stolen. I could have bought a second hand computer or even a brand new one, or Brenndan was going to buy a new one and give me his old one. My friend at Apple offered to let me use her discount to replace the computer or the iPod. In the end, I have decided to replace my crashed hard drive with a new one and I've found a used iBook with a busted logic board to so I can recycle the display. All told this should cost me about $400. I'm saving money not buying a new computer but more importantly I'm not buying any new stuff, except for the HD. I'm not ready to replace the iPod yet (I don't even have a computer!) but when and if I do, it will be with a used one. It took me this long to even decide what to do but now that I have I'm glad I'm doing this, not least because I don't even LIKE the new iBooks but because I'm also breaking the habit of buying new stuff. It seems like there has got to be an alternative to doing that.
