Testing, Part 2.

To update the post below, the effort was a mixed success. The movie on my iPod was able to entertain Erica, and she was very impressed by the device itself, and the novelty of holding a movie in her hands.

First problem: she couldn’t wear the earphones (cos they were too large for her ears) and had to use the speaker. This was somewhat crappy, seeing as the car gets pretty loud with just the sound of the engine and the winds whipping by as we roared down the highway, so she kind of had to make do.

Second problem: a user-friendly device with touch screen navigation is extremely interesting to a curious and bright child. So I can tell you that there were a few times I checked back to make sure she was watching her movie, after a few times I saw her repeatedly tapping the screen.

Bonus: the iPod also held its own against sticky Timbit fingers. Not that I needed or cared to know, but now I do, and all of you do too. “Will it be okay if my kid eats a couple doughnut holes and plays around with it?” “Yes, it will.”
