I'm a sophomore at San Francisco State University, and I'm having the time of my life. I play water polo, do a lot of rock climbing, and am completely hooked on my MacBook and my iPod touch (a.k.a., "iTouch"). Since getting my iTouch, I don't think I could survive without it.
Taking notes, late papers, and deadlines
San Francisco State is a wireless campus and I can access my e-mail anywhere I go. This helps a lot if I forget to turn in a paper. With my iTouch and Apple's MobileMe service, I can access my desktop computer's documents and e-mail the required document to the professor, from wherever I am on campus.
I can't wait to see how useful my iTouch will be during the next school year. With its ability to take notes as well as create reminders, I can hopefully eliminate some of the late papers. If I create enough notes and alarms, I'll never forget a deadline again.
Staying on top of my personal life
The iTouch has also become my daily planner and address book. I have a strange love of writing and receiving snail mail, but sometimes had a hard time keeping track of mailing addresses. Now, everything's in Contacts on my iTouch. I no longer have to call my friends to get their address so I can mail them a letter.
The YouTube app keeps me entertained
when I have some time to kill.
Finally, I love to show friends photos I've taken with my digital camera. Before getting the iTouch, I had to carry my digital camera around and show the photos on its tiny screen. Now, I load them all onto my iTouch and show them to friends on its large, color screen—a definite improvement.
I never noticed how many iPods and iPhones there were on campus until I got one. Now, it seems like everyone I pass is wearing ear buds and listening to music or watching a video on an iPod or iPhone. It's definitely become a major part of life on a college campus
